3 Faces

Dir. Jafar Panahi. Iran, 2018. 1h 41m. Persian/Turkish/subs. Starring Behnaz Jafari, Jafar Panahi, Marziyeh Rezaei, Maedeh Erteghaei, Narges Delaram.

An insightful road movie about Iranian actress Behnaz Jafari (playing herself) abandoning a film shoot to help find a young actress whose life might be in danger. Acclaimed director Jafar Panahi's fourth feature since he was banned from filmmaking in his homeland, and the joint winner of the Best Screenplay Award at last year's Cannes.

‘3 Faces is Panahi at his best. The holistic vision of a nation is all at once generous and embracing, alarming and admonitory, bleak and beautiful. Truth is delivered to us by an artist who has suffered it.’ ★★★★★ Nigel Andrews, The Financial Times

‘Panahi remains one of the most intellectually inquisitive and agile voices in Iranian cinema.’ ★★★★ Wendy Ide, The Observer
