Amir Dejakam: If I do not talk like this with my elder in my house, where should I talk?

Amir Dejakam, an actor in theater, television and cinema, said at the meeting with the president: “It is said that if a person lived in this world after his death, he could have a better life by using the experiences of his past life.” But because that is not possible, we use the experiences of others.

He added: “Sometimes these experiences are transmitted in the form of history, books, universities and lectures, at one time the language is theater.” A language that is alive and well and you seem to have experienced it yourself. I feel today that this strategic art, as the mother of our country’s great cinema, which has done great things in the country and in the world, has remained oppressed and abandoned.

Dejakam added: “I came here today to love these things. Excuse me if I speak frankly, but if I do not speak to my elder in my house, who should I talk to?”

Stating that the field of culture and art is the field of maturity, not greed, he added: in the name of youth, let us not be childish. Anyone who approves of a film or screenplay should be familiar with the field.

President Seyed Ibrahim Raisi also said in the meeting: “We must always see dynamism in work and work grow.” If one day our cinema or documentary is at a stage, we should upgrade and think about upgrading. By no means should we be satisfied with the current situation and we should move towards the desired situation.

He added: “Without compliments, our traditional music lights are going out.” The music of the tribes is not in a good condition either. We have also raised these issues in the service of Mr. Ismaili, Minister of Guidance, he has made and will make valuable efforts, but I think your support will accelerate the achievement of the result.

Please do not think that what all artists are saying is what you have heard here.

But we are also looking to hear what different people are saying.
