The Statement of Farhad Tohidi, Festival Director, to the 5th International Green Film Festival
“He who knows not the truth is a fool but he who knows it and calls it a lie is a criminal”.
The Earth hardly breathes. This is a fact, deniable and totally unmasked in front of us and, of course, no one can shrug off this fact.
Our fate is tied to water, soil, plants and animals. To save the Earth, we need the whole globe to join to collaborate. .This rough but possible mission is not merely governments and politicians’ duties, it is EVERYONE’s. To make the public aware of this inevitable mission, no media is more efficient than art.
The language of art, and cinema in particular, is capable of creating this deep belief that if we do not take actions for saving the Earth today, tomorrow is too late.
