Synopsis
This past December, Panahi, along with fellow filmmaker Mohammad Rasoulof, was sentenced to six years in prison by a Tehran Revolutionary Court after his conviction on charges of "colluding with the intention to commit crimes against the country's national security and propaganda against the Islamic Republic." The reason was that he was planning a fiction film about the aftermath of the disputed 2009 presidential election in which Mahmoud Ahmadinejad retained the chief executive's office. An insight into the life of Panahi while he was waiting for the verdict.
