Monday 28 November, Start 7pm

A taxi driver is driving through the vibrant streets of Tehran. Diverse passengers enter the taxi, each candidly expressing their views while being interviewed by the driver who is no other than the director himself. His camera placed on the dashboard, transforming his car into a mobile film studio, he captures the spirit and contradictions of Iranian society through this comedic and dramatic drive.
Banned from travelling and making films in 2010, Jafar Panahi has managed to astonish us with his beautiful trilogy composed of This is not a Film (2011), Closed Curtain (2013) and now Taxi Tehran.
“I’m a filmmaker. I can’t do anything else but make films. Cinema is my expression and the meaning of my life. Nothing can prevent me from making films.”
