Taxi Tehran (2015) - (Jafar Panahi) Polish Poster
This is a 12" x 15.75" Polish poster for the 2015 Jafar Panahi film Taxi Tehran written by Jafar Panahi and starring Jafar Panahi as the Tehran driver talking with his passengers about their lives in Tehran. In 2010 Panahi was banned for making films or engaging in political activity in Iran for 20 years after he protested the legitimacy of the election of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as Iran's president and became an outspoken supporter of the Iranian Green Movement. This one was released without actors, credits or official distribution in Iran. The film was smuggled out of Iran on a USB drive hidden in a cake. It received the Golden Bear Award and the FIPRESCI Prize at the 2015 Berlin International Film Festival, which were collected at the festival on Panahi's behalf by his niece Hanna Saeidi (who also appears in the film). The film is available with English subtitles on Netflix and YouTube.
Cast and crew: Jafar Panahi, Hanna Saeidi
