Director Jafar Panahi drives a yellow cab through the vibrant streets of Tehran. Diverse passengers, including his niece, a vendor of pirated DVDs, and human-rights activist Nasrin Sotoudeh, enter the taxi and candidly express their views of the world while being interviewed by the gracious Panahi.
With an irrepressible dedication to cinema, Jafar Panahi defied a ban on filmmaking for the third time in Taxi Tehran. In an ingenious turn as a taxi driver, the disobedient director talks with passengers about art, censorship, and resistance, and creatively circumvents the Iranian state once more.
