Sean Stone: Criticizing Iran is Like Saying Father Shouldn’t Hit His Kids

Sean Stone, actor and filmmaker and the son of Oscar-winning Oliver Stone is accompanied by Mellissa Carter, a film and television producer in Tehran, Iran to make a documentary movie.

Stop Fundamentalism - It seems film making business in Hollywood is in deep trouble nowadays and the movie capital of the world is losing its producers and staff to odd countries such as Iran.  And it seems those who are being exported out of the city are quite desperate and do anything and say anything to get a job.

Stop Fundamentalism, 9 September 2011 - The Oscar winning filmmaker Oliver Stone has been making some headlines in an odd place far away from Hollywood. Tehran that is and he is planning to make a move about, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Iran’s not so popular president.

Iranian Mehr News Agency reported this week that Sean Stone, the son of director Oliver Stone is currently in Tehran to make preparations for the filming.  He was supposed to have a press conference in Tehran on Wednesday but the conference was later canceled without any explanation.

The Iranian daily, Keyhan reported on 29 August that only 25 showed up at the said demonstration siding with those in Washington who say MEK has no popular support!
