||According to a posting on Jafar Panahi's facebook, a day after publishing a letter to colleagues in Cannes Film Festival, Panahi's temporary detention was extended for 2 more month!|
My dear friends, please accept my warm regards from the dark and narrow cell
in Evin prison.
Unfortunately today after meeting with my family I was informed about your
valuable efforts at Opening the first day of your Sixty-third Cannes World
I salute your dignity and humanitarism from here and salute you all in Cannes Film Festival Credits; particularly I sincerely thank Mr. Gilles Jacob.
My special thanks goes to Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner and Mr. Frédéric Mitterrand French Culture Minister for their efforts toward my freedom; I really appreciate it.
Your voice sounds like voices from behind the tall walls of Evin prison when I hear for my freedom from my wife, children and loved ones.
At these moments I spend life with love for all my friends among juries, filmmakers and all participants at Cannes Film Festival who see my name on the empty seat.
With the hope of a better tomorrow,
Tehran Evin Prison ward 209
