Winner of the Golden Bear at Berlin Film Festival 2016, 'Taxi Tehran' is a witty and subversive piece of guerrilla filmmaking from director Jafar Panahi ('Three Faces').
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 one else but the director Jafar Panahi himself. His camera placed on the dashboard of his car, transforms the car into a mobile film studio, and captures the spirit and contradictions of Iranian society through this comedic and dramatic drive.
