To the Academy of Motion Pictures,
As one of the members of your prestigious Academy, it would be great
if you passed this message along to all of the other Academy members:
My name is Bahman Ghobadi, one of your fellow members. You have
certainly heard about what has been happening in Iran. The Iranian
regime recently killed a young woman named Mahsa Amini for not wearing
her headscarf “properly.” The Iranian people have gone to the streets
to protest against the regime. We, my people and I, need your support
to spread this news and to stand by the Iranian people and their
rightful protests. We need your support more than ever.  Please help
us spread the word.
Warmest regards,

Bahman Ghobadi
