This Is Not A Film

Friday, February 24, 2012


Jafar Panahi is an award-winning Iranian director who was recently given a six-year jail sentence and a twenty-year filmmaking ban for what his government has called propaganda against the state. In response, he’s made a movie. It’s called This is Not a Film, and he shot it in his apartment on a digital camera and an iPhone. Fellow Iranian filmmaker Jamsheed Akrami talks to Bob about the non-film, which was smuggled out of Iran in a cake.
