Season extended for one last movie – Taxi

We were unable to screen TAXI in February and have managed
to extend our season in order to present this film.

Thursday April 28 @ 7:00 pm / GALAXY CINEMAS / Sault Ste. Marie

Director: Jafar Panahi
Iran 2015
Persian with English subtitles / 82 minutes

Internationally acclaimed director Jafar Panahi drives a taxi through the vibrant streets of Tehran, filming as he picks up and talks with passengers throughout the day. Panahi quietly coaxes his fares to speak to him about their concerns, fears, hopes, and expectations. And the men, women, and children he picks up respond with
candour to the curious and gracious driver/director. Brilliantly
redefining the borders of comedy, drama, and cinema, Taxi presents a spirited and multi-layered mosaic of Iranian society.
