Iran | 82 minutes | Not Yet Rated | DCP | Dir.Jafar Panahi

Director Jafar Panahi, banned from filmmaking by the Iranian government, poses as a cab driver, chauffeuring citizens through the streets of Teheran. He encounters a wide variety of unique individuals, ranging from a teacher, a bootlegger of DVDs, two old women with goldfish, an injured man, a cheeky young girl, and a human rights lawyer. On candid camera, these folks say anything and everything on their minds, leading to very interesting conversation. "This spry, sharp and relentlessly clever middle finger to censorship is Panahi's boldest act of defiance to date."- David Ehrlich, Time Out
