French Film Industry Rallies to Support Iranian, Women-Led Protests in Wake of Mahsa Amini’s Death in Custody (EXCLUSIVE)
Elsa Keslassy International Correspondent Award-winning filmmakers Alice Diop (“Saint Omer”), Audrey Diwan (“Happening”), Julia Ducournau (“Titane”), Michel Hazanavicius (“The Artist”), Jacques Audiard (“Dheepan”), and actors Juliette Binoche, Marion Cotillard, Isabelle Huppert, Lea Seydoux are among nearly 1,000 prominent French film figures who have signed an open letter to support Iranian women and civil rights activists in their revolt over the death of 22 year-old Mahsa Amini, as well as denounce the “murderous violence” of the Iranian regime. Amini, a Kurdish woman, died in custody on Sept. 16, three days after being arrested in Tehran because she allegedly breached the Islamic republic’s strict dress code for women. Her death has sparked protests across Iran, including in Tehran, Isfahan and Yazd, and in cities around the world, including in Paris, Istanbul and Los Angeles. Amnesty International said Iranian authorities have been “intentionally using lethal force against the protesters,” causing more than more 52 deaths (as of Sept. 30). The organization has urged international action “beyond statements of condemnation” to prevent more people from being killed.

Demonstrations began in Kurdistan province on September 17 following Mahsa’s funeral, and rapidly spread across the country with several clips of Iranian citizens publicly going viral.

Sick state-backed Iranian TV compares Queen to Hitler and calls her death 'good news'
Queen Elizabeth II, who died last week (September 8) aged 96, some anti-Western regimes have been tastelessly celebrating.One of those is Iran.And, according to several reports, a leading Iranian state-run TV channel has compared Her Majesty to the murderous leader of the Nazi regime, Adolf Hitler.READ MORE: 'Good omen' for King Charles as he's licked by corgi during Northern Ireland visitAnd the Iranian channel – a mouth piece of leaders in the country – shockingly claimed that she was “one of the greatest criminals in the history of mankind” and that her legacy of the United Kingdom was “full of crime, abomination and filth”.The comments came from Foad Izadi of Tehran University.Speaking on Channel 1 – the main news television channel of the country which throws members of the LGBTQ+ community off of buildings – he said: “Perhaps, in light of her 70 years on the throne, she should be included in the same list with Hitler."From a certain perspective, we should be sad that this person died because she died without standing trial, without being punished, and without paying for her crimes.”And to make it worse, during an English-language broadcast on PressTV – the channel which former Labour MP Chris Williamson currently presents an anti-semitic conspiracy theory-laden show about Jews on - he added: “The Queen is a famous imperialist, colonialist, war criminal, aggression of the British army throughout the world is done under her name.“British armed forces are the Queen's armed forces.“So we have just a handful of people who have engaged in so many atrocities in the last century: Hitler, for example, some American presidents belong to that list, and Queen Elizabeth that oversaw the end of the British empire.“The number of
