Panel: Flagge zeigen für die Demokratie / Raising the Flag for Democracy

24.11.2022 16:00

A revolution is breaking out in Iran, and the West has withdrawn from Afghanistan. Social and political issues play a central role in cinema. When filmmakers are subjected to reprisals or are persecuted for their work, it’s not just a restriction of artistic freedom – it’s often a very concrete existential threat. We talk about the acute situation in Afghanistan and Iran with an actress and two directors who live in exile and are personally committed to democracy and human rights.

With: Siddiq Barmak, Afghan director and Golden Globe winner | Marina Golbahari, Afghan actress | Mohsen Makhmalbaf, Iranian director and co-founder of the New Wave

Moderation: Nino Klingler
