by Darius Kadivar

I had an interview with Shabahang Host Behnood Mokri to talk about this year's Cannes Awards. I hate to watch myself on TV particularly with my hesitant Persian but well I hope you will still find it interesting nevertheless. ;0)

A international success for a film by an Iranian director. Glad VOA placed the analysis in your caring hands.


DK jaan I thought you were interviewing not being interviewed!

Very nice interiew none-the-less.  Congratulations!  Please don't forget you've promised us to ask about Aravane Rezai next time you interview that Iranian Tennis dude!

I think this guy who is interviewing you may be one of your nemesis on behind a pseudo ID name and now playing nice and innocent! 

Hope to see more of you on TV.

Everything is sacred.

Hopefully one of these days you will get the chance to appear before the camera on VOA or some other news outlet to share with us some of your experiences at HE in Qom. Of particular interest to some of us is all those times you spent in the Boshkeh Eshgh!?
