Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman, Hassan Qashqavi, has said that Hollywood film makers have thirty anti-Iranian movies in the offing.
"Hollywood has thirty anti-Iranian movies in the offing with the subject of hostility towards Iran's historical and Islamic identity," Qashqavi told reporters at a weekly news conference in Tehran on Monday.
"The subject of making various movies has directly targeted not only Iran's religious and historical identity but also the country's social values including hospitality in an attempt to show hostility towards the Islamic Republic," he added.
"There are certain political objectives behind a number of movies under the pretext of creating art," he explained.
The controversial anti-Iranian Hollywood film '300', made by Zack Snyder, is an example of such films. 300 was severely criticized due to its historically inaccurate version of the events described in the movie. Persians in the film are also depicted as ugly and violent creatures rather than realistic human beings.
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad called the movie a distortion of history saying that it represented 'psychological war' waged by western powers to hinder Iran's progress.
Many historians have called the Hollywood film an imprecise narration of history and say the film has been politically motivated. http://wakeupfromyourslumber.blogspot.c ... anian.html
