Tehran/Pittsburgh YouTube Mix

When: 11.30a, Saturday, July 10

Conflict Kitchen (Pittsburgh) and Sazmanab (Tehran) presented a live screening of videos curated directly from YouTube posts shot both in Tehran and Pittsburgh.  This back and forth format utilized the vast and idiosyncratic resources of YouTube to present first-person video accounts that reflect on the daily life of each city. The forty-minute screening was followed by a live Skype conversation between attendees in Pittsburgh and Tehran. Waffles and our homemade kubideh sandwiches were available for purchase.

This event was originally developed by Sohrab Kashani and Jon Rubin for Red76 and “The YouTube School for Social Politics”.
