About the Program

Defying a governmental ban on him making films, director Jafar Panahi affixes a camera to the dashboard of a yellow taxicab—effectively creating a mobile film studio—and interviews his passengers. The resulting documentary not only captures a spirited slice of Iranian society but also redefines the borders of cinema.

(2015, 82 min. No MPAA rating. In Farsi with English subtitles.)
