3 Faces

Drama, World Cinema 1h 40m 2018

Since he was forbidden to engage in any filmmaking activities for 20 years after being arrested on charges of propaganda against the Iranian government, Jafar Panahi has found inspiration in his circumstances. Made through a variety of subterfuges, his productions This Is Not A Film (2011), Closed Curtain (2013), and Taxi Tehran (2015) have acted as multi-layered examinations of subject matter such as the contemporary Iranian state, the nature and motivations of government-sponsored censorship, and the value of art in society.

3 Faces also returns to a topic familiar to viewers of Panahi’s pre-2010 work, that of the status of women in Iranian society. After receiving an apparent suicide note from a girl whose family oppose her decision to study drama, actress Behnaz Jafari (playing herself) and Panahi undertake to seek her out and to discover the truth of the matter.

Winner - Best Screenplay, Cannes Film Festival.
