Competition: Win Taxi Tehran on DVD!

It’s your chance to win this celebrated offering from Jafar Panahi!

Made under the lifelong state imposed filmaking ban upon it’s director this defiant road movie won the Golden Bear at the 65th Berlin International Film Festival. Now it’s coming to DVD and Blu-Ray this month (22nd February) thanks to New Wave Films. Fortunately for all of you New Wave Films have been good enough to grant us two DVD copies to give away to lucky Rumsey readers!

Here’s the official text to whet your appetite:

A taxi driver is driving through the vibrant streets of Tehran. Diverse passengers enter the taxi, each candidly expressing their views while being interviewed by the driver who is no one else but the director Jafar Panahi himself. His camera placed on the dashboard of his car, transforms the car into a mobile film studio, and captures the spirit and contradictions of Iranian society through this comedic and dramatic drive. Banned from travelling and making films in 2010, Jafar Panahi has managed to astonish us with his beautiful trilogy composed of This is not a Film (2011), Closed Curtain (2013) and now Taxi, winner of the Golden Bear at this year’s Berlin Film Festival.
