I am very pleased that after 20 years “Leila” will be shown in cinema halls for the fans of the cinema. The film, which was scanned and the colors were corrected by the Laboratory of Sound and Television and the Studios in the past year and converted to a 2K quality digital version, has reappeared in Iranian and world’s cinemas, so that the enthusiasts of this field can enjoy it, and this has lots of hope in it. This will be greatly appreciated by the efforts of Art and Experience cinematic group, and I’m thankful from their management. I hope the Ministry of Culture and Guidance and cinema directors, with this approach, will bring all the manuscripts of Iranian cinematic films to a digital version of quality and do not condemn them for their preservation, because they will refer to them, and history and literature need some of these works; therefore, they are considered a kind of national capital, which must be diligent in preservation and preservation.
