This “Third” cinema was very different from that existing in Latin America, Africa or any developing countries, because of different social-historical contexts. Some of the filmmakers of that period were forced to leave the country for political and cultural circumstances.

It should also be noted that the attractive Iranian cinema of today is the outcome of a tradition developed in the pre-revolution era.
