Seasonal Special Happenings

Taxi

When: Fri., Oct. 16 2015

Banned from filming in Iran, director Jafar Panahi secretly shot his new feature, Taxi, while driving a cab around Tehran. As you can imagine, he picks up a variety of passengers, including a DVD bootlegger, an injured man and a young girl. They talk about what life in Iran is like. The film blurs the lines between fact and fiction as Panahi hasn't said how much of the movie is scripted. It screens at 7:30 tonight at the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque and shows again at 7 p.m. on Sunday. Tickets are $9. (Niesel)
