3 Faces (2018)


3 FACES | Opening Film – Singapore Premiere | Thu 25 Oct | National Museum Singapore | 8.00pm

Dir. Jafar Panahi | 2018 | Iran | Drama | 100 mins | DCP | Persian with English subtitles | PG13 (Some Mature Content)

Coming from a rural mountain village, Marziyeh Rezaei wishes to attend the Tehran drama conservatory, but her aspirations are thwarted by her conservative family. Out of options, she sends a shocking suicide video to director Jafar Panahi, accusing celebrity actress Behnaz Jafari of ignoring her calls for help. In hopes of uncovering Marziyeh’s whereabouts, Jafari and Panahi drive up to her village, where they learn that the hospitality amongst the garrulous locals is as persistent as their deep-rooted traditions.

3 Faces is Panahi’s fourth film under his 20-year filmmaking ban by Iranian authorities, following This Is Not a Film (2011), Closed Curtain (2013), and Taxi Tehran (2015). Marking a return to the feminist leanings of his earlier works The Mirror (1997) and Offside (2006), the film offers a critical look at the injustices and double standards faced by Iranian actresses at different stages of their career. Panahi pays tribute to the Iranian women who can no longer abide by the patriarchal rules that hold them back, and who wish to walk alone ahead.
