Film Discussion Meetup: Jafar Panahi’s Taxi

Monday, August 2, 2021

Meet other cinephiles and talk movies!

Meet other film fans and talk about a movie available to stream for free via Kanopy for Menlo Park residents with a library card. 

No discussion pressure! 

This month, the group discusses "Jafar Panahi’s Taxi."

Internationally acclaimed director Jafar Panahi (This is Not a Film) drives a yellow cab through the vibrant streets of Tehran, picking up a diverse (and yet representative) group of passengers in a single day. Each man, woman, and child candidly expresses his or her own view of the world, while being interviewed by the curious and gracious driver/director. His camera, placed on the dashboard of his mobile film studio, captures a spirited slice of Iranian society while also brilliantly redefining the borders of comedy, drama and cinema.
