FREE JAFAR PANAHI!

A project by Vidéographe, Montréal – Québec
curated by Sonja Zlatanova
From 15 July to 31 August 2015

The initiator of the project, the producer Marcel Jean explains how the concept took shape:
“October 2011. After the Iranian filmmaker Jafar Panahi lost his appeal against a six-year prison sentence and twenty-year ban on making films, traveling or giving interviews, I decided to invite filmmakers I knew to make very short films in support of Panahi’s release. In particular, I sought out directors from animation and experimental cinema, areas usually thought to be less politically engaged than documentary. I asked that the films be produced on a strictly volunteer basis: zero budget for producer, director, technicians and production support. Within a few days, my call had already elicited a dozen responses. The Jafar Panahi Project will continue to grow until Panahi, the recipient of the 2012 Sakharov Prize, is released.”
