Iran: 'Girls, Existence, Freedom' struggle 'is going on' at Cannes Movie Pageant




Iran is once again in the spotlight at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. This Friday, recently exiled filmmaker Mohammad Rasoulof will present his film “The Seeds of the Sacred Fig”, selected in Official Competition. Like Rasoulof, many Iranian artists have faced prison or exile. The photography exhibition “Women, Life, Freedom”, showcased at the Hôtel Le Majestic for the duration of the festival, pays tribute to their courage with a series of giant portraits by photographer Moja.
