3 FACES / Serokh

After receiving a shocking video of a young hopeless wannabe actress escaping her repressive family and committing suicide, Jafar Panahi goes on a search for her along with the girl’s cinema idol, a famous Iranian actress.

An allusive and charming journey reminiscent of the great works of Abbas Kiarostami, 3 Faces is an amusing road trip through the territory of patriarchal rural Iran where the protection of age-old traditions is as generous as local hospitality.
