Taxi Tehran (12A)
Thu 01 Jan 1970
Iran, 2015, 82 mins. Dir Jafar Panahi
Iranian with English subtitles.
Banned from making films in his own country courageous Iranian director Panahi (This is Not a Film) breaks boundaries once more in his latest documentary.
In this Berlin prize winning documentary Panahi rigged a taxi with hidden cameras and posed as a taxi driver ferrying a lively collection of passengers around the city. A warm and mischievous film, which captures the everyday challenges of living in Iran.
A work of invention and brio that remains visually lively throughout ?????
Guerilla film-making with a difference ????
