Directed by Jafar Panahi


This lauded slice-of-life movie stars exiled Iranian filmmaker Jafar Panahi as he poses as a taxi driver in Tehran, in this series of portraits of everyday characters hiring his driving services. Jafar Panahi’s Taxi offers another round of societal commentary from a director whose entire filmography stands as a daring act of dissent.


"Panahi looks for new perspectives everywhere he goes, and this search reflects his unwavering devotion to cinema, which has the power to transmit those perspectives to the world." - Ben Sachs, Chicago Reader

"Despite the laughs, Taxi never loses touch with the desperate reality at the heart of its formal experiment." - Giovanni Marchini Camia, The Film Stage
