One of my dearest friends in the business, Katayoon Shahabi, international sales agent and producer of the Iranian documentary A Brief Peace is among the six Iranian filmmakers just imprisoned in Iran for working for the BBC. Her company Sheherazade is the only independent international sales agent in Iran. She sold Iron Island to my other dear friend Don Krim (whose memorial service will be held in N.Y. September 25.) I am completely unnerved by this news. Read the full story in IndieWIRE.You can also sign a petition here for the prisoners' release.
