Closed Curtain  [2013]
DirectorJafar Panahi, Kambozia Partovi
CastMaryam Moghadam, Jafar Panahi, Kambozia Partovi
Politically persecuted Iranian master Jafar Panahi — still under house arrest and banned from filmmaking for twenty years for engaging in "propaganda" against the Islamic Republic — follows his magnificent This Is Not a Film with another brilliant and moving hybrid of video diary, essay film, and impassioned political protest.
A house by the sea; the curtains are pulled shut, the windows covered with black. Inside, a man is hiding with his dog. He is writing a screenplay, when suddenly a mysterious young woman appears and refuses to leave, much to the writer’s annoyance. But at daybreak, another arrival will flip everyone’s perspective.
