A reminder that the first instance of the "Arab Spring" might have occurred in Iran. A reminder that the thirst for human rights and political freedom is universal.

It offers a rare glimpse into the insurgents' long-held hopes for reform. This green wave, as a blogger remarks, is a tidal wave.

For all its omissions and problems, "The Green Wave" communicates certain basic truths effectively: Many Iranians want their voices to be heard and their votes to count.

That Ahadi and his team were able to safely compile, let alone edit together, this much ground-level footage is a feat in and of itself; that it comes together in such a compelling manner makes it almost vital.

There are harrowing moments and a pulse, throughout, of passionate indignation. But more precision in the chronicling of events would have generated more power.
