This is the second part of a post that originally appeared on and is published here in collaboration with the International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran. Under President Hassan Rouhani, Iran has continued to ban films despite his repeated statements on the need to allow more cultural freedoms in the Islamic Republic.“Rastakhiz” was the latest addition to the list of forbidden cinema, barred from screens in July 2015 by the Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance, under the direct authority of Rouhani.“As far as I’m aware as the director, this film has been made in accordance with the views of religious leaders, during the research phase when it received permission for production, and during the making of the film,” Darvish told ISNA, the official Iranian Students’ News Agency.“Even before public screening, when the film was being revised, representatives of some honorable religious leaders were present and some of them praised the filmmakers.” According to the Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance spokesman Hossein Noushabadi, “' Rastakhiz’ will remain in suspension until its issues are resolved.
Conservative media have slammed the film for being against “traditional and family values” and despite a number of revisions, it has not received a permit for public screening.
Hardline critics are particularly displeased with scenes showing the turbulent events after the 2009 presidential elections in a positive light.
Despite its popularity with the Fajr film Festival’s audiences, “I’m Not Angry” was pulled from the festival’s competition category to ensure it received no awards, even though its leading actor Navid Mohammadzadeh had been nominated for the Best Actor award.
“What usually happens is that if a film has a chance of being screened after censorship and revisions, the monitors will discuss it in a meeting with the director.
But there are some films which have fundamental problems in terms of plot, screenplay and production and for those the monitors will not even bother to set up meetings,” he added.
