Protesters shout slogans as they march against election results in Tehran on June 13, 2009Lebanese authorities have banned the screening of a film depicting the 2009 post-election “Green Movement” protests in Iran, organisers of a local film festival said on Sunday. “‘The Silent Majority Speaks’, the admirable visual essay of filmmaker Bani Khoshnoudi, has been censored in Beirut,” a statement from the Cultural Resistance International Film Festival organisers said. “The film was to be screened tonight… At noon, the Censorship Committee served notice to the festival’s organisers that it was banned for ‘insulting a foreign country,'” the statement added. Lebanon’s Censorship Committee is part of the General Security agency and monitors all films before screening in the country.
