Solidarity with the Women and Men Protesting in Iran
The Berlinale supports the call for solidarity from Iranian filmmakers:
"Independent Iranian filmmakers are standing by these fearless Iranian women and men and are trying hard to capture and document history as it unfolds with limited resources. They are committed to being the truthful, independent, and courageous narrators of history. To be the voice of the people. [...]
We ask you to further echo the rallying cries of Iranians for freedom. Become the voice of those people who are paying with their lives for freedom. Your direct and public support offers hope to our youths. Reporting on the news of violence used against our people can prevent more violence and bloodshed."
