Description

Internationally acclaimed director Jafar Panahi (The White Balloon) 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 candidly 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. "Can a filmmaker under house arrest make any more defiant a gesture than by directing a bonafide road movie?" asks Scott Foundas in Variety. "Such is the question implicitly posed by Taxi, the third surreptitious film à clef directed by Panahi since his 2010 conviction on charges of conspiring to create anti-Islamic propaganda. The result is a film of quiet but proud outrage, laughing on the surface, but howling in anger just beneath." Taxi won the Golden Bear for Best Film at the 2015 Berlin Film Festival.
