Getting Past the Censors
Saturday, April 09, 2005
Being criticized is never easy for a writer, but condemnation for Iranian filmmakers, novelists and poets can lead to censorship, prison or worse. Even a famous writer like Goli Taraghi can find herself condemned for allegedly slipping sexual messages into a simple children's story. We caught up with Taraghi at her home in France, where she described the long, frustrating process of getting her work past the authorities. Produced by Michele Siegel.
