The upcoming event in Brazil was featured on the front page of the cultural section of Brazil's leading newspaper, Folha de San Paulo.

In two recent interviews, Mr. Makhmalbaf highlighted the situation of filmmaker Jafar Panahi, Mojtaba Mirtahmasb, and of the Bahai teachers in Iran who each received prison sentences of 4-5 years.

Mr. Makhmalbaf will also meet with Brazilian filmmakers Walter Salles, Fernando Meirelles, and Arnaldo Jabor to discuss Brazil's position at the UN towards the government of Iran. The goal of his trip is to further the movement for the freedom of the arts and culture and education in Iran.
