In the period from January to June, domestic films outperformed imported ones by 65 percent. That was a major reversal from the same period last year, when proceeds from imported films almost doubled those of domestic productions. The stakes are high.

Ingenue in Exile: Why a Hollywood Star Can't Go Home

"I don't want to be a political figure," Farahani says. "I hope I'm not one."
