THE PATIENCE STONE
Warm Reception in the Muslim World
So far, The Patience Stone has been greeted warmly in the Muslim world, winning Best Film in
the 2012 Eurasia International Film Festival in Kazakhstan and Best Actress in the 2012 Abu
Dhabi Film Festival. It has been screened in Kabul and will play in public theaters; "Yes, in
Kabul of course the film has been and will be screened in public, but not necessarily in other
parts of Afghanistan. It won't be shown in Iran at all -- Golshifteh's work is banned there -- but
she is tremendously popular and people will find a way to see it. There's no question that the
film is controversial in the Muslim world, but whether the mullahs are ready or not, people are
ready to hear this story."
