Miami Premiere Engagement!
“Best of Cannes Film Festival”
(Winner: Best Screenplay)
Directed by JAFAR PANAHI/Iran/2019/1hr, 40mins.
With Behnaz Jafari, Jafar Panahi, Marzayeh Rezaei
Iranian director Jafar Panahi’s fourth completed feature since he was officially banned from filmmaking is one of his very best. Panahi begins with a smartphone video shot by a young woman (Marziyeh Rezaei) who announces to the camera that her parents have forbidden her from realizing her dream of acting and then, by all appearances, takes her own life. The recipient of the video, Behnaz Jafari, as herself, asks Panahi, as himself, to drive her to the woman’s tiny home village near the Turkish border to investigate. From there, 3 Faces builds in narrative, thematic, and visual intricacy to put forth a grand expression of community and solidarity under the eye of oppression. – New York Film Festival (In Farsi with English subtitles).
WINNER: Best Screenplay Cannes Film Festival
Official Selection: Toronto and New York Film Festivals

“A beautiful expression of artistic solidarity.”–Sam C. Mac, Slant Magazine
“An artful, surprising and thrillingly intelligent story about a few women trying to make a difference.”–Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times
