KEEPING IT REAL EVENING COURSE: THIS IS NOT A FILM

Mojtaba Mirtahmasb & Jafar Panahi

Iranian filmmaker Jafar Panahi remains banned from filmmaking. Sitting in his apartment awaiting the judge’s ruling on an appeal, alone except for a pet iguana, he invites his friend to come over, and starts to reflect on his films. While nothing appears to happen, what unfolds serves to question the nature of documentary itself, and the role of a filmmaker within a closed society. Donald Taylor Black, lecturer and filmmaker will consider documentary filmmaking and the challenges it brings.

Screening as part of the IFI Keeping It Real Evening Course ( Oct 4th-Nov 8th 2016) only. Film tickets not individually sold.
