WELCOME SESIONS presents Jafar Panahi’s fearless and funny film, Taxi Tehran.

Iranian filmmaker Jafar Panahi is banned from making films in his own country, but in this playful documentary, he poses as a taxi driver with hidden cameras to talk about the regime that has banned him and to hear about the life stories of the passengers he picks up.

Taxi Tehran is in Persian with English subtitles.
