November’s offering for the Woodlands Community Anti-Racist Film Club is a comedy drama about a director banned from making films who takes to driving a taxi fitted with a camera around Tehran, discussing social challenges in Iran with his passengers. Based on the director’s own circumstances, this is the third film director Jafar Panahi has released in semi-clandestine conditions.
