Iranian Director Jailed and Banned from Making Films

Iranian Director Jailed and Banned from Making FilmsSubmit Comment
The acclaimed Iranian filmmaker Jafar Panahi was sentenced to six years in prison today, and banned from directing and producing films for the next 20 years. Panahi, who is an outspoken supporter of Iran's opposition green movement, was convicted of gathering, colluding and propaganda against the regime.

"He is therefore sentenced to six years in prison and also he is banned for 20 years from making any films, writing any scripts, traveling abroad and also giving any interviews to the media including foreign and domestic news organizations," said his lawyer, who will appeal against the conviction.

Panahi won the Camera d'Or award at the Cannes film festival in 1995 for his debut feature, "The White Balloon," and took the Golden Lion prize at Venice for his 2000 drama "The Circle."

Wrong guy jailed I'm afraid. They should have gone after a German named Uwe Boll instead.

No Mink, just straight to firing squad

You're too kind, AYT. I would suggest some torture first, preferably using that creepy old guy from True Lies.

THEN a firing squad. Or a horse quartering. Or just throw the f*cker into a plastic shredder.

If only we can do the Same to McG, Ratner, and pretty much everyone else.

Any of you guys seen the movie "Not Without My Daughter"?

Like Black Hawk Down, that movie can convert you into a racist.

I say the wrong guy's being hung up to dry.

Where's Brett Ratner or Uwe Boll to take his place ?

Good call, Mink!

@Ayt Ball

It's like shooting a spitwad at an iron wall.

It's a nice gesture, but nothing will ever come of it.
