Acclaimed Iranian film director Jafar Panahi has been banned from making films in his native country, but that doesn’t stop him from getting his messages out there; Taxi Tehran is in fact his third film since the ban. This time he drives around the streets of Tehran in his yellow cab, picking up ordinary Iranians for a chat. Social challenges in the Iranian society is what is being portrayed through a range of different passengers.
Taxi Tehran is a beautiful portrait of Tehran and its people.
The film received the Golden Bear at the 2015 Berlin International Film Festival.
