Members' Preview: 3 Faces
Well-known actress Behnaz Jafari (playing herself) is distraught to receive a video plea from a girl being pressured by her family to abandon studies at the Tehran Drama School. Behnaz turns to filmmaker Jafar Panahi (also playing himself) to help solve the mystery of the young woman’s troubles. Together they travel to northwest Iran and have an assortment of amusing encounters with the people of the girl’s mountain village. But the visitors soon discover that the fierce protection of age-old traditions is as deeply ingrained as the local hospitality.
Why You Should See This Film
Winner of the Best Screenplay award at the Cannes Film Festival, 3 Faces is the fourth project acclaimed director Jafar Panahi has completed since being banned from filmmaking by the Iranian government. Full of warmth, insight and deeply felt humour, it's a thoughtful examination of community and solidarity under the eye of oppression.
