Maryam ebrahimvand, an Iranian writer and cinema director has been sentenced to 10 year and 6 months in prison for two of her movies, a family member told Avatoday.
Iran calls one of her movies Girls’ Pension, which critically looks at rape against Iranian women, a “vulgar” work.
The family member who talked to Avatoday on condition of anonymity said that the sentences were ordered by IRGC in Tehran’s Culture and Media Court.
Ebrahimvand was also charged for making September 24, a movie which Iran says it accused Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps of being the main reason behind the ongoing brain drain of Iranian elites.
Ebrahimvand has been held in Tehran’s notorious Evin Prison for three years before her jail sentence was announced on Saturday.
