About the filmmaker
Jafar Panahi’s films are known for portraying realistic images of Iranian society, causing them to be banned from the screen in Iran. In fact, only his first film, THE WHITE BALLOON, has been granted a screening license in Iran. Panahi has been arrested twice for his filmmaking. The second time for 86 days until finally the Iranian government, pressured by the solidarity of international film festivals, artists, and Panahi's hunger strike, released him on bail.
