Jafar Panahi: Interviews
Find in the Library
In this collection of interviews, open letters, and essays, Iranian filmmaker Jafar Panahi discusses his influences, motivations, and struggles as an artist living and working in a repressive theocracy. Most of the collection has been translated from Farsi and appears in English for the first time. Spanning his early days as an assistant under Abbas Kiarostami to his present-day reality as a banned (but still active) filmmaker, this volume features Panahi’s impassioned court defense (following imprisonment) and an exclusive interview given by the director.
