Iran/release of Jafar Panahi
Paris, May 25, 2010
We are happy that Jafar Panahi has today regained his freedom, a freedom he should never have been denied.
Once again, we regret that he was unable to participate in the 63rd Cannes Film Festival as a member of the Jury, where he was eagerly awaited.
We would like him as soon as possible to be able to resume his artistic activity, which is a credit to Iranian cinema./.
