Watch the First Trailer for Jafar Panahi’s Golden Bear-Winning ‘Taxi’

Jafar Panahi’s Film

The first official trailer for Jafar Panahi‘s Tehran selfie Taxi has debuted, thanks to TIFF where the film will be playing.

The film won Berlin’s prestigious Golden Bear earlier this year and Kino Lorber is planning to release it in select U.S. theaters starting October 2nd.

Check out the first trailer for the “Iranian Taxi Driver,” which actually shows a cabby driving very diverse assortment of people through the colorful streets of Tehran.

Iranian directors have managed to produce some brilliant films and I hope it’s one of these movies.

Jafar Panahi’s Film

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.
