Featured Film:

Jafar Panahi’s Taxi at the Northwest Film Forum

The acclaimed Iran director Jafar Panahi has smuggled another film to the outside world in contravention of his government-imposed 20 year ban on filmmaking. Driving a taxi through the streets of Teheran, digital camera attached to the dashboard, Panahi talks with a variety of locals as he maneuvers around the city’s traffic tangles. Notable are his precocious niece, a dealer in bootleg DVDs, and a pair of women in a hurry to transport some goldfish. Like much of his previous work, it melts the line between fiction and reality, while documenting the poignant struggle of a artist in exile.
