Iranian director Jafar Panahi continues to defy a filmmaking ban imposed by his home country with his fourth film made since the ban was imposed.
The winner of best screenplay at Cannes, the drama focuses on a well-known actress, compelled to support a girl’s plea for help in her dream to study drama - a dream quashed by her parents’ values. She heads to the rural north, discovering tradition is as potent as her celebrity.
By turns playful and defiant, Jafar Panahi's sparkling work adds to his already rich and varied oeuvre.Gráinne Humphreys, Festival Director
