Iranian Filmmakers expect Ahmadinejad’s revenge


Ramin, a reader of CWB in Tehran writes us in an email ”Iranian Filmmakers and actors and actresses that opposed Ahmadinejad in the recent Iranian presidential election by supporting the moderate Mirhossein Mossavi, are now scared of Ahamadinejad’s revenge. Almost no one in the Iranian film community expected Ahmadinejad’s win and now they believe this will bring about darker days and more restricted censorship [to Film].

Iranian filmmakers and actors and actresses, in a video called Green Stars posted on Youtube, went far enough to tell their audiences that a future with Ahmadinejad will be a disaster for art and for the whole country. Looking at brutal beatings and vast number of arrests of those objecting the election results makes the future of those involved with art in Iran grimmer”
