Jafar Panahi's Taxi

Jafar Panahi's Taxi
Documentary, International | 2015 | NR. 1hr 22min
DIRECTOR: Jafar Panahi

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

This is not just a powerful lesson in creative determination and censorship defiance but an absorbing look at humanity, full of poignancy and humor.
Nora Lee Mandel,
The sequences go from lightly absurd and funny to troubling and political, from Panahi's enjoyment of the rich fabric of secular life in Tehran to his anxiety of residing in a society controlled by the thought-police of Iran's religious oligarchy.
