A Cinema of Discontent

This film explores Iranian censorship codes featuring interviews with 12 Iranian filmmakers, including Jafar Panahi, Bahman Ghobadi and Oscar-winning Asghar Farhadi.

It documents the brave efforts of those who work under harsh circumstances rarely seen elsewhere, only to have their independence punished by being banned from working, imprisoned or forced into exile.
