As a sign of protest Eureka Media withdrew "Planet Kirsan" from the "Cinema Verite" Festival in Iran

2011-11-03

Dear Documentary and Experimental Film Centre, 

 

After hearing the stunning news that filmmakers Mojtaba Mirtahmasb, Mehran Zinatbakhsh and film distributor Katayoon Shahabi were not released from the unjust detension we decided to take a stand on this overwhelming circumstance.

This information shocked us just as it did many of our friends working for festivals all over the world. After receiving so many e-mails asking for support we cannot stay aside. Yet there is only one way in which we can raise our strong objection!

As a solidarity to the filmmakers that are being kept imprisoned and a strong disagreement with the human rights policy undertaken by the Iranian government we request to withdrawn our films from the participation in Cinema Verité Iran International Documentary Film Festival. The titles are as follows:

Takie życie/ That’s life by Daniel Zieliński

La Machina by Thierry Paladino

Smolarze/ Charcoal burners by Piotr Złotorowicz

38,5 by Grzegorz Dębowski

Komeda, muzyczne ścieżki życia/ Komeda a soundtrack for a life by Claudia Buthenhoff-Duffy

Planeta Kirsan by Magdalena Pięta

This decision was made unanimously with all the producers and filmmakers and expresses our clear standpoint to this unjust violation of human rights.  

 

On behalf of Krakow Film Foundation,

Katarzyna Wilk and Zofia Ścisłowska

 

Thank you so much for your support! I would like to thank Polish filmmakers' expression of solidarity on behalf of dozens of intimidated Iranian filmmakers.

Warm regards

Maziar
