As part of the World Cinema Festival, The Albany Picture House presents Taxi Tehran from Iran.
Screened in Persian with English subtitles
Jafar Panahi is an Iranian film-maker that has been banned by the Iranian authorities from making films for 20 years. Bravely he has ignored this ban and this, his latest film, is a blending of documentary and fiction. Rigging a taxi with three cameras Panahi ferries actors around Tehran where they talk candidly about life in Iran, a country that is more complex and contradictory than we in the West can probably understand.
Winning the best picture prize at the Berlin FIlm Festival this is a film which demonstrates the spirit of defiance in artists.
“It is engaging and disarming: a freewheeling semi-improv piece of guerrilla film-making, cleverly staged and choreographed, with the discursive, digressive qualities of an essay film.” Peter Bradshaw
