Iranian cartoon pulled from film festival | The Australian:
From correspondents in Bangkok
June 27, 2007

THAILAND has caved in to pressure from Iran and withdrawn the animated movie Persepolis, about a girl growing up and feeling repressed under Islamic rule, from next month's Bangkok International Film Festival.

'I was invited by the Iranian embassy to discuss the matter and we both came to mutual agreement that it would be beneficial to both countries if the film was not shown,' festival director Chattan Kunjara na Ayudhya said today.

'It's a good film, but there are other considerations.'

The film, based on the popular French comic books of Iranian director and writer Marjane Satrapi, drew complaints from the government-affiliated Iran Farabi Foundation when it was screened at this year's Cannes Film Festival in France.
After all, this country would never do anything like that...
