Shocking treatment toward any human being. Have these judges no feeling? No compassion? Have conservative judges in Iran no humanity? A country whose leaders have no humanity is a country lost. This woman must be released.

This is a cruel punishment and an embarrassment to the reputation of Iran. It will fuel ignorance about Islam and prejudice against Muslims around the world.

So she appeared in a movie, OUTSIDE of the country, and still gets arrested? Let people be who they are, not your indoctrinated drone!

Iranian film is one of the worlds most important artistic cinematic forms. Too much of Iran's cinematic history has been lost or censored for ever. From what I understand of the Iranian Governments censorship of films it is inconsistent and is often executed by persons with little or no knowledge of film. The imprisonment of Marzieh Vafamehr, although a grave and inconceivable violation of her Human Rights, I see as one more catalyst for the fight for independence as a country and their artistic freedom. She was brave to appear in a film that they knew had the potential to violate every cinematic law pertaining to the Iranian governments strict censorship of film. Stay strong Marzieh!
