NYFF Day 14

Posted by on 10.13.2011

FILMLINC DAILY PICK:
This Is Not a Film, 6:00pm, Alice Tully Hall, RUSH TICKETS AVAILABLE!*
A day-in-the-life chronicle of the banned Iranian director Jafar Panahi evolves into an enormously moving statement of political and moral conviction. This film, a work of great courage, humor, and self-reflection, is an example of how art in Iran flourishes despite the nation's ever-restricted circumstances. (NYFF Spotlight)
