3 Faces

Cinema

Directed by Jafar Panahi| 2018 | Iran | Persian, Azerbaijani, Turkish | Starring Behnaz Jafari, Jafar Panahi, Marziyeh Rezaei| 1hr 40m | Certificate 15

Iranian director Jafar Panahi’s fourth completed feature since he was officially banned from filmmaking is one of his very best. Panahi begins with a smartphone video shot by a young woman (Marziyeh Rezaei) who announces to the camera that her parents have forbidden her from realizing her dream of acting and then, by all appearances, takes her own life. The recipient of the video, Behnaz Jafari, as herself, asks Panahi, as himself, to drive her to the woman’s tiny home village near the Turkish border to investigate. From there, 3 Faces builds in narrative, thematic, and visual intricacy to put forth a grand expression of community and solidarity under the eye of oppression. – New York Film Festival

3 Faces was selected to compete for the Palme d'Or at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival and won the award for Best Screenplay.
