Jafar Panahir's Taxi

Jafar Panahi is banned from making movies by the Iranian government, he poses as a taxi driver & makes a movie about social challenges in Ir

When you are a filmmaker and you are not allowed to direct movies any more, you have to retrain. So why not become a taxi driver? Or better, why not pretend you are a taxi driver and make a film despite everything? This is what Jafar Panahi has done. Now he invites you to get into his cab for the price of a cinema ticket, to ride through the streets of Tehran and discover its people in the persons of his various passengers.

Jafar Panahi‘s Taxi offers another round of trenchant societal commentary from a director whose entire filmography stands as a daring act of dissent.

SUGGESTED ADDITIONAL READING ABOUT JAFAR PANAI:nhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jafar_PanahinnInteresting Tidbit:nThe film premiered in competition at the 65th Berlin International Film Festival where it won the Golden Bear and the FIPRESCI Prize. In 2010, Panahi was banned from making films and travelling, so his niece Hana Saeidi, who also appears in the film, collected the award on his behalf.
