Says the AV Club, because I'm too lazy to paraphrase: "Panahi’s views have gotten him in trouble with the authorities before—last summer, we reported that he, his wife, and his daughter were arrested during a public mourning for slain election protestors—and now he’s been scooped up in the latest government crackdown on dissidents. According to the website of Mir Hossein Mousavi, the opposition candidate he strongly supported in the dubious election that kept Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in office, Panahi, his wife, and his daughter, along with 15 dinner guests, were arrested at his home on Monday night and are currently being detained in an undisclosed location."

Oh, fuck.
