iranian poster


Iranian posters for the movie “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” (”Sobhaneh dar Tiffany” in Persian) when it was in theaters in Iran (1962)

The movie was a huge hit in Iran.

Since after the Islamic revolution of 1979 American movies have rarely been shown in Iranian cinemas. American movies however are shown on Iranian state TV, although with occasional censorship.

Text: “The Heroic and Intelligent people of Iran know the burning of the American flag and effigies of (Jimmy) Carter and the siege of the CIA Spy House and receiving the Shah is a start for fighting against the American Imperialism.   

Moving toward a cultural revolution can help us to become creative and independent from foreign and domestic dominators in the fields of Politics, Economy, Science and Art”
