Free Jafar Panahi

Iranian filmmaker Jafar Panahi has been jailed for six years, and banned from making films for twenty, for his criticisms of the Iranian government. Censorship is the greatest threat to our work, and we filmmakers need to stand together to support the free exchange of ideas, and the right to practice our art.

You can sign a petition supporting his release, but given the Iranian “revolutionary” government’s history, it seems likely to be an unfortunately symbolic gesture.
