Did You Miss It?, New Releases
Well-known Iranian actor Behnaz Jafari is distraught after receiving a video plea from a provincial girl begging for help to escape her conservative family. She turns to her friend, the filmmaker Jafar Panahi (played by Panahi himself), to help solve the mystery of the young girl’s troubles. Together, they hit the road to the girl’s village in Iran’s rural northwest where local traditions rule. Iranian director Jafar Panahi (This Is Not a Film) delivers a poetic road movie analog of his master Abbas Kiarostami’s Palme d’Or winning film Taste of Cherry.
