Dear AMEJA Members
AMEJA are proud to sponsor the screening of acclaimed Iranian filmmaker Jafar Panahi’s newest film 3 Faces in Los Angeles on March 30th.
Panahi’s fourth completed feature since he was banned from filmmaking is one of his very best.
Tickets are available here:
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
