you have a cool dissertation topic - lots of good movies to see, and really interesting people to meet.
Thank you! I am thoroughly enjoying the research stage of it just now. Censorship in Iranian cinema is just one section of it, I am equally keen to look at Iranian films that thrive under the restrictions and get a sense of how Iranian audiences feel about their film industry, perhaps also in relation to the Hollywood industry for contrast. If you can recommend any people I should look into or films to watch that would be great. So far I’ve checked out: Circle, Persepolis, The Green Wave, Women Without Men, Ten, This Is Not A Film and A Separation. The dissertation idea stemmed from watching Argo and finding it very one-sided so I am keen to find some Iranian films that directly cover events during the wars for comparison.
