JAFAR PANAHI'S TAXI
The winner of the top award at the 2015 Berlin Film Festival, this is the third film Jafar Panahi (THE WHITE BALLOON, OFFSIDE) has made in defiance of a 20-year ban on filmmaking imposed on him by the Iranian government in 2010. In it, the affable director crisscrosses Tehran behind the wheel of a taxi, giving rides to a variety of its denizens. While the tone of TAXI is lighter than that of his previous violations of the ban, THIS IS NOT A FILM and CLOSED CURTAIN, like them it wittily challenges the very notion of banning cinema in a time when everyone carries a camera. DIR/SCR/PROD Jafar Panahi. Iran, 2015, color, 82 min, DCP. In Persian with English subtitles. NOT RATED
