Description


3 FACES (Se rokh)

Iranian master Jafar Panahi (The White Balloon, This Is Not a Film) is one of three main characters in his own gently-paced meta-mockumentary, as he and film star Behnaz Jafari drive to northwest Iran on a quest to thwart the suicide of a young, aspiring actress esperateto escape her constrained, provincial life.
Winner of Best Screenplay at Cannes Film Festival. Iranian director Jafar Panahi’s fourth completed feature since he was officially banned from filmmaking is one of his very best. Panahi begins with a smartphone video shot by a young woman (Marziyeh Rezaei) who announces to the camera that her parents have forbidden her from realizing her dream of acting and then, by all appearances, takes her own life. The recipient of the video, actress Behnaz Jafari, as herself, asks Panahi, as himself, to drive her to the woman’s tiny home village near the Turkish border to investigate. From there, Three Faces builds in narrative, thematic, and visual intricacy to put forth a grand expression of community and solidarity under the eye of oppression. (Iran, 2018, 100 mins., NR, Persian with English subtitles | Dir. Jafar Panahi)
