Hana Makhmalbaf’s Green days was banned for good by the ISF after it was postponed a year ago upon the Iranian president Ahmadinajad’s visit. I am guessing the reason is that it messes with the Iranian political stability which is crucial for us Lebanese of course. [Link]
The Lebanese movie “Chou Sar” will be allowed though after being banned in September 2010. Apparently, it no longer incites sectarianism now. [Link]
If only ISF were more focused on catching criminals and armed maniacs than banning cultural movies.

I saw the film Green Days when it was screened last year at Empire in Sofil after the Iranian president Ahmadinajadâ€™s visit. It was banned during his visit only.
Weird then how come they banned it now?
How did you find it Roula? Worthy watching?
For an amateur film it was ok, but a bit boring at times. They cut and jump around a lot. It gives you an idea into the way of life in Iran for those who are against Ahmadinajad.
i thought Lebanon was a democracy :/ no one has the right to stop any form of criticism, this pretty much sums up the state of the freedom of speech in Lebanon, all for the sake of Ahmadinejad and hairy fat fuck Nasrallah
