Chilean film director pays respect to Imam Khomeini

A prominent Chilean film director and screenwriter says he respects Imam Khomeini, the late founder of the Islamic Republic, from bottom of his heart

Miguel Ernesto Littin Cucumides made remarks after visiting different parts of historic simply-built residence of Imam Khomeini’s in Jamaran, northern Tehran.

The director expressed deep respect for the late founder of the Islamic Republic by saying, “I respect him (Imam Khomeini) from the bottom of my heart,” after paying tribute to Imam Khomeini on Thursday.

The internationally-reputed director earlier participated in the first section of the third edition of the the Ammar International Popular Film Festival (APFF), held in the Iranian capital Tehran on August 24-26, 2016.

Littin is known internationally as one of the foremost Latin American filmmakers and five of his films have been featured at the Cannes film festival.

More than 5,000 films from 129 countries were submitted to the secretariat of the APFF, which was a record-breaking number.

The Ammar festival was held to make the world familiarized with the Iranian culture.

Imam Khomeini’s simply-built residence is visited by artists, intellectuals, scholars, tourists from across Iran and other parts of the world each year. Imam opted to live in the simple house after becoming the founder of the Islamic Republic in 1979.

The victory of Islamic Revolution under the wise leadership of Imam Khomeini confronted arrogant powers, and changed the balance of power in the interests of developing and oppressed nations.
