Director: Džafar Panahí

When the renowned Iranian director and screenwriter Jafar Panahi was banned from making films, he became a taxi driver and shot a documentarylike movie, which by means of conversations with the passengers provides a refined critical view of Iranian society. Devoid of any self-pity and with disarming humour, Panahi raises the question of how an artist should behave in a country disallowing free speech. With a camera fixed on the dashboard, he created a film more eloquent than many a socio-political study.
