NETPAC is outraged by the Iranian Court's sentence of Jafar Panahi and Muhammad Rasoulof

Aditya Friday December 10, 2010

NETPAC is outraged by the Iranian Court's sentence of Jafar Panahi and Muhammad Rasoulof to 6 years of jail and 20 years of not being allowed to make a film, travel outside Iran or to speak to the media. As long as these two great filmmakers are censored in this intolerable manner, then all of us who value film must fight for their right to create art that reflects the truth. 

We urge NETPAC members and others who love cinema to join the world film community in protest of this inhuman and unjustified sentence to sign the following petition. Please pass this message on. If millions of people through the world sign this, we can make a difference.
