Tehran, YJC. María Poumier says Western audience is withheld real, ‘sacred’ heroes in cinema and is instead given false ones.
Filmmaker María Poumier, born 1950, France, is known for her pro-Palestine activities.

In interview with Tasnim she said "Naturally all filmmakers want to be independent. Escaping all the pressure is difficult. Some times developing interesting ideas all by yourself is also difficult. Some enter the field without having any interesting idea. Iran does good to develop cinematic novelties, which shows that Iranian artists are in step with modernity and current trends in terms of form and artistic technology.”

As you know, in the 60s in Cuba and in all of Latin America literacy was much in vogue as an important issue. Educating people to get rid of their misery and teaching them how to read and write. A lot of campaigns were launched which UNESCO also supported. Right now there is this big revolution to reach intellectual independence and gain the minimum spiritual freedom through videos. Everything is shown on the internet in the form of still and motion pictures. So helping the youth and nations to form an independent cinema is to save them.”
