Iranian actor sentenced to 90 lashes for featuring in banned film

Schon wieder Neuigkeiten von Rüdiger Safranskis Dialogpartnern:

For one Iranian actor, life is mirroring art, in the most gruesome of ways. Two years ago Marzieh Vafamehr starred in a film about an actor whose theatre work is banned in Iran.
Now she faces a year in prison and 90 lashes after Iranian officials took exception to the film, which is itself banned inside the country.
Her crime? Appearing in an Australian film which is critical of the Islamic regime with her head uncovered.
Vafamehr, wife of the acclaimed film-maker Nasser Taghvai, was arrested in July after starring in My Tehran for Sale, which touches on many of the taboo issues of modern life in Iran.
„A sentence of one year in jail and 90 lashes has been issued for Marzieh Vafamehr,“ said a report published on, a news website close to opposition leader Mir Hossein Mousavi. Her lawyer has appealed against the sentence, it said.
