Internationally acclaimed Iranian director Jafar Panahi has been officially banned from filmmaking since 2010.  In a courageous act of artistic and political defiance he has made three features since then including Jafar Panahi's Taxi.  In Taxi he 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, whil being interviewed by the curious and gracious driver/director.  His cameral, 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.
