No Bears


Opens April 28

One of the world’s great cinematic artists, Jafar Panahi has been carefully crafting self-reflexive works about artistic, personal and political freedom for the past three decades. In 2022, he was once again imprisoned by the Iranian government for his work. This film once again features Panahi, playing a filmmaker like himself; this time, he is on the Turkish border, looking in on his homeland as a scandal breaks out around him, pulling him back into controversy, and danger. Winner, Venice Film Festival. (Iran, 2022, 106m)
