Taxi (2015)
March 12, 2022 10:48 PM - Subscribe

A yellow cab is driving through the vibrant and colourful streets of Tehran. Very 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 mobile film studio captures the spirit of Iranian society through this comedic and dramatic drive

A beautiful slice of humanity presented in a fictional documentary style. We watch a "day in the life" of the director Panahi pretending to be a taxi driver and the various characters he encounters. Each encounter elicits conversation that touch upon topics ranging from capital punishment to social justice to Iranian film industry regulations.
