The Iran Film Project (WORK IN PROGRESS)

Ultimate list for any and all movies related to Iran.
Please suggest films that are either:
a) specifically about Iran or
b) feature at least one Iranian main character.
Films directed by Iranians but not centered around Iran or Iranian characters are pointed out in notes.
Short films, documentaries, propaganda, etc are all okay.
