Despite impending jail-time, two convicted Iranian filmmakers, Mohammad Rasoulof and Jafar Panahi, are screening new films at the Cannes Film Festival this week that could put their legal situations in jeopardy. But both filmmakers were willing to take the political risk.
“The worse case scenario is that I’ll have to go back to jail if the Iranian authorities don’t approve,” Rasoulof said on the phone Wednesday from Tehran, speaking through a translator. “Hopefully, I’ll be able to bring some books.”
