Straight from the Cannes Competition, this humorous and mysterious drama is Jafar Panahi’s (Tehran Taxi, SFF 2015) fourth film since being banned from filmmaking in Iran.

Well-known actress Behnaz Jafari is left distraught when she comes across a provincial girl’s video plea for help, after her family prevents her from taking up her studies at the Tehran drama conservatory. Behnaz abandons her shoot and turns to filmmaker Jafar Panahi to help with the young girl’s troubles. They travel by car to the rural northwest, where they have amusing encounters with the charming and generous folk of the girl’s mountain village. But Behnaz and Jafar also discover that old traditions die hard. Panahi (The Circle, SFF 2001, Offside, SFF 2011 and Crimson Gold, SFF 2011) explores some of his favourite themes – the determination of Iranian women and the power of cinema – in his powerful new film.

I’m a filmmaker. I can’t do anything else but make films. Cinema is my expression and the meaning of my life. Nothing can prevent me from making films, as when being pushed to the ultimate corners I connect with my inner self and, in such private spaces, despite all limitations, the necessity to create becomes even more an urge. Cinema as an Art becomes my main preoccupation. That is the reason why I have to continue making films under any circumstances to pay my respect and feel alive. – Jafar Panahi
