Filmmaker Mohammad Nourizad, who spent almost a year in prison for criticizing the regime in letters he sent to Khamenei, has renewed his sharp criticism in a new short movie, “We Have Murdered People.” The movie begins:
We must believe that we have failed the 33-year test of the Islamic Revolution and the implementation of the promises that we made to the people. This is a fact, albeit bitter. Our bankruptcy began quite some time ago, as has the time for saying goodbye, goodbye to the Islamic justice that the Revolution promised. So long, human rights that the Revolution promised to the people of Iran and the world. So long, the fallen ideals of the Revolution. We have demonstrated that the religious people and the clerics can lie if they come to power, that they can turn their backs on all the promises that they made, that they can embrace the world[’s materialism], despite once speaking against it in the past, that they can oppress, they can loot, they can murder people.
The movie ends with “We lied, we lied, we lied, we looted, we murdered people, murdered people. We murdered people”.
