Here’s a transcript of Farhadi’s comments after winning the Foreign Language Film Oscar for Iran, courtesy of Reuters:

“At this time, many Iranians all over the world are watching us and I imagine them to be very happy.

“At a time of tug of war, intimidation and aggressions exchanged between politicians, the name of their county, Iran, is spoken here through her glorious culture, a rich and ancient culture that has been hidden under the heavy dust of politics.

“I proudly offer this award to the people of my country, the people who respect all cultures and civilizations and despise hostility and resentment.”
