A reason behind the renewal of Iranian cinema — one of the most important — was the banning of Hollywood films. That was the only positive point about censorship in Iran. The rest of the time it only did damage. They shouldn’t have banned them completely, just set up national quotas. Why stand by idly? What about our voice? What is this monologue? Why are 90% of cinemas in the grip of Hollywood? Do other countries not have thinkers or images? Dreams or sorrows? Why do some countries not have filmmakers? Why should one country do our dreaming for us and impose its lifestyle? — Mohsen Makhmalbaf, Iran: A Cinematographic Revolution
