News from Makhmalbaf Regarding Iran
I've read a number of accounts on the situation in Iran, but I wanted to post a link to one in particular. Mohsen Makhmalbaf, a very well-known Iranian filmmaker, is apparently close to the allegedly defeated presidential candidate Mousavi. He was asked to give an account of the events on behalf of Mousavi, who is currently being held under lockdown. The article is well-written, and certainly worth a read, but I am especially interested in hearing what Makhmalbaf has to say because of his political past (see the wiki article, linked above - he identified with the '79 revolution, which makes his involvement in this situation interesting).
