3 Faces (CTC)

Winner of the Best Screenplay award at the Cannes Film Festival, 3 Faces is the fourth film acclaimed filmmaker Jafar Panahi has completed since being banned from filmmaking by the Iranian government. Full of warmth and insight, it is a deeply felt expression of community and solidarity under the eye of oppression.

Actress Behnaz Jafari is distraught when she comes across a young girl's video plea for help after her family prevents her from taking up her studies at the Tehran drama conservatory. Behnaz abandons her shoot and turns to filmmaker Jafar Panahi to help with the young girl's troubles. They travel by car to the rural Northwest, where they have amusing encounters with the charming and generous folk of the girl's mountain village. But Behnaz and Jafar also discover that old traditions die hard.
