On August 30, 2022, film director Ali Ahmadzadeh was summoned and arrested.
According to HRANA, the news agency of Human Rights Activists, quoting Radio Farda, film director Ali Ahmadzadeh was summoned and arrested.
The reasons and the government agency responsible for this arrest are unknown so far. However, it seems that this arrest may be related to the film Ahmadzadeh recently directed without obtaining a permit from the Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance.
In recent months, reportedly, Ahmadzadeh has been summoned frequently by security institutions.
In recent months, the security forces have intensified the pressure upon cinematographers as two other film directors, Jafar Panahi and Mohammad Rasoulof have been arrested.
