Filmmaker-Actress Pegah Ahangarani, Jailed In Iran For 18 Months (0’58”)

AFP: “An Iranian court has sentenced filmmaker and actress Pegah Ahangarani to 18 months in prison, her mother told ISNA news agency Monday, apparently for her social activities, political comments and interviews with foreign media.”She has been sentenced to 18 months in the trial court,” Manijeh Hekmat, who is also a director, told ISNA without giving further details.
Ahangarani, 29, was arrested in her flat in July 2011 and was released on bail later that month. Currently, she is not in detention, as an appeals court must confirm the sentence before it is applied under the Iranian system. Judiciary spokesman Gholam Hossein Mohseni Ejeie meanwhile told ISNA Ahangarani was free and “had not been arrested”. But Hekmat said that her daughter has been prevented from leaving Iran for nearly three years.” [more at link]

“Would I like to see Wormwood in a theater on a big screen? You betcha. I’d be disingenuous to argue otherwise. But we’re all part of, like it or not, an industry, and what Netflix offers is an opportunity to do different kinds of films in different ways. Maybe part of what is being sacrificed is that they no longer go into theaters. If the choice is between not doing it at all and having it not go to theaters, it’s an easy choice to make.”
