Iranian Elections: Marjane Satrapi and Mohsen Makhmalbaf Speak Out

June 22nd, 2009 · 1 Comment · Filmmakers, French cinema, Iranian cinema, Politics

In following the events that are happening in Iran, it occurred to me that Marjane Satrapi, the creator of Persopolis, would certainly not be shy about speaking out on the situation. A quick search found that she, along with filmmaker Mohsen Makhmalbaf (Kandahar), a representative for opposition candidate Mir Hossein Mousavi abroad, spoke out in front of the European Parliament on June 16th,  seen above YouTube video. A report on the presentation posted on Adnkronos International can be found here.
