We love cinema, but...

Today's post is about cinema. Yes, in Teheran there is a (small) cinema museum. Iran has a strong tradition in this art, which still continues today. The museum is small but interesting. It tells the history of cinema in Iran, presenting the most important directors and actors and celebrating the international awards that they got. There is only one absurd thing. Many of those directors and actors are nowadays exiled because of their political views. But this is Iran: a place full of contradictions.
