Middle East Now to screen "Formerly Youth Square"

"Formerly Youth Square" documentary is going to be screened at Middle East Now international film festival in Florence/ Italy. The festival 2020 will take place from October 6th to 11th at Cinema La Compagnia and other venues in Florence. 

The film opens with a photograph taken in Javanan square, depicting a group of 70 journalists from Jame’e Newspaper, which closed down. Only six of these journalists continue to work in the field. Some emigrated after the 2009 unrest following alleged rigged elections, and others were imprisoned or gave up following years of pressure from the political establishment.
