Taxi (2015 film)

type
  • Movie

Taxi, the latest film from Iranian director Jafar Panahi, has won the Golden Bear for best film at this year’s Berlin International Film Festival.

Shot in secret, Taxi—which stars Panahi as a taxi driver in Tehran—is the third film to be smuggled out of Iran by the director, after that nation’s government imposed a 20-year ban from filmmaking upon him in December 2010.

Other prizewinners include Pablo Larrain’s El Club, Jayro Bustamante’s Ixcanul, and Patricio Gúzman’s El Bóton de Nacár.

For the full list of winners, head over to the festival website.
