Internationally acclaimed director Jafar Panahi (This is Not a Film) drives a yellow cab through the vibrant streets of Tehran, picking up a diverse (and yet representative) group of passengers in a single day. Each man, woman, and child candidly expresses his or her own view of the world, while being interviewed by the curious and gracious driver/director. His camera, placed on the dashboard of his mobile film studio, captures a spirited slice of Iranian society while also brilliantly redefining the borders of comedy, drama and cinema.
The film was awarded a Golden Bear at the 2015 Berlin Film Festival.
“He looks like he’s having a wonderful time, but a sordid reality is never far off: Panahi’s films are acts of defiance, and each one could be his last.” — Stephanie, Merry, Washington Post
“Here’s proof that you can’t keep a great filmmaker down.” — Bruce Demara, Toronto Star
