On Monday 27 March at Filmhuis Den Haag, we screen three Iranian classics in a row, introduced by actor and filmmaker Alin Wishka.
In Taxi Tehran, grandmaster-director Jafar Panahi (2015) himself is behind the wheel of a taxi, which together with a choice of passengers immediately exposes the soul of Iranian society. Clandestinely filmed, and highly humorous.
In the divorce drama A Separation (Asghar Farhadi, 2011), Simin wants to leave Iran, but her husband Nader wants to stay. The conflict takes them to the family court.
The overwhelming animated Persepolis (Vincent Paronnaud, Marjane Satrapi, 2007) is the film adaptation of Marjane Satrapi’s successful graphic novel, about her childhood in Iran.
