From the Archive

February 10, 2011: On the evening of the opening, one chair had to remain empty: After the Berlinale invited Jafar Panahi to join the International Jury, he was sentenced to six years in prison and a 20-year professional ban in his home country. Jury President Isabella Rossellini read out an open letter from the Iranian director in which he emphasised that he would not allow his hopes or dreams to be taken away from him.
