2013 Oscar Best Documentary Shortlist: ‘This Is Not a Film’

This-is-not-a-Film2012 Sofia International Film Festival – Winner UNESCO Award for Best Documentary.

This is not a film. This is a documentary, a pseudo documentary perhaps, about Iranian movie maker Jafar Panahi on his incoming six years jail sentence and twenty years ban verdict, his films, Igi the iguana, iPhones, MacBook (yes, iPhones and MacBook, in Tehran. In reality US and Iran clearly don’t hate each other that much), fireworks, and realizing the unrealized screenplay  that got him the prison sentence.

My Rating: 7/10
