Jafar Panahi’s TAXI
Taxi passengers express their views and opinions as world renowned filmmaker Jafar Panahi drives through the streets of Tehran, Iran. WINNER: GOLDEN BEAR (Berlin Film Festival); Best Foreign Language Film (San Diego Film Critics Society)
Internationally acclaimed director Jafar Panahi (This is Not a Film) drives a yellow cab through the vibrant streets of Tehran, picking up a diverse (and yet representative) group of passengers in a single day. Each man, woman, and child candidly expresses his or her own view of the world, while being interviewed by the curious and gracious driver/director. His camera, placed on the dashboard of his mobile film studio, captures a spirited slice of Iranian society while also brilliantly redefining the borders of comedy, drama and cinema.
