Thornbury Picture House: Taxi Tehran
Cossham Hall, Thornbury
When Jafar Panahi noted filmmaker from Tehran is banned from making movies by the Iranian government, he poses as a taxi driver and makes a movie about social challenges in Iran as he drives his cab in the streets of Tehran.
The changing passengers speak out openly what is on their mind. A female teacher and a young man discuss death penalty, a bootlegger offers the new season of "The Walking Dead" and some Woody Allen movies, two old women want to transport their goldfish in a glass bowl, a young woman wants to transport her much older husband who has been injured in an accident, and a cheeky little girl explains the rules of Iranian filmmaking and her entitlement to a frappuccino.
