Still living under long-term house arrest, banned Iranian filmmaker Jafar Panahi devises a further probe into his society, this time through a rural mystery.

A famous actor abandons her film set, accompanied by the director (played by Panahi) to embark on a search for a young woman who appears to have taken a drastic stand against her family’s filial control. In the remote villages of Iran, traditional patriarchal customs appear firmly intact, sometimes playfully observed here, at other times disconcerting. As a quasi-realist allegory, such insight into Iranian traditions in a little-seen region underpins this film’s quiet impact.

Championing Iranian New Wave cinema, Panahi’s works have received universal critical acclaim. Screening it worldwide represents a stand against those authorities who attempt to prevent its release.

“Part intriguing mystery, part examination of clashing traditional and modern cultures, it once again exhibits [director] Panahi’s ability to interrogate Iran’s inner divisions without imposing judgements” Raphael Abraham, The Financial Times
