In conservative Iran, public life is for men only, women are even banned from attending football matches. As the Islamic Republic competes for a place in the 2006 World Cup, a group of female football supporters disguise themselves as men so they can watch to see if their national team will triumph at the game they love. But when their charade is discovered, they are confined to a holding pen, where they must hear the cheers and shouts of the match without seeing it
Il cerchio = The circle by Jafar Panahi( Visual )

84 editions published between 1998 and 2011 in 9 languages and held by 769 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A woman is afraid to tell her pregnant daughter's in-laws that the expected male child did not arrive--it is a girl instead. A group of women recently released from prison can't escape from being prisoners. A destitute mother tries to abandon the daughter she can't provide for. The police pick up a prostitute while her customers go free. In the fundamentalist theocracy of Iran, these women have all committed an eternal crime: being female. Surrounded by suffering and oppression, the world closes in on these women, limiting those choices that haven't already been made for them, along the narrow, tragic paths of Iranian womanhood

Each man, woman, and child candidly expresses his or her own view of the world, while being interviewed by the curious and gracious driver/director. His camera, placed on the dashboard of his mobile film studio, captures a spirited slice of Iranian society while also brilliantly redefining the borders of comedy, drama and cinema

Jafar Panahi, the Iranian writer/director of internationally acclaimed films such as CRIMSON GOLD, THE CIRCLE and OFFSIDE, is under house arrest, and has been banned from filmmaking for 20 years. THIS IS NOT A FILM is a courageous effort by Panahi and his co-director Motjaba Mirtahmasb to fight against censorship and for human rights, not only for his colleagues in the Iranian film industry, but filmmakers everywhere. THIS IS NOT A FILM is a day-in-the-life documentary of Jafar Panahis experience of being under house arrest, filmed almost entirely inside his apartment in Tehran, as he creatively expresses his frustration of not being allowed to do what comes so naturally to this passionate writer and filmmaker: make films

6 editions published between 2013 and 2018 in Persian and English and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Acclaimed Iranian filmmaker Jafar Panahi (This is Not a Film) bravely defies a twenty-year government ban on filmmaking to create a masterpiece. In a secluded house by the sea, a screenwriter hides from the world with only his dog as company. The tranquility is abruptly broken one night by the arrival of a young woman fleeing from the authorities. Refusing to leave, she takes refuge in the house. But come dawn, another unexpected presence will change everything. A highly self-reflexive work about both the act of creation and the desire to self-destruct, this powerful film illustrates the difficulty of being an artist in a highly censored society.. Silver Bear Winner for Best Screenplay and nominated for the Golden Bear at the Berlin International Film Festival.. "Critic's Pick! A mischievous, Pirandellian entertainment. It is also an allegory, dark but not despairing, of the creative spirit under political pressure, and of the ways the imagination can be both a refuge and a place of confinement." - The New York Times. " * * * * * (Five out of five stars)!. Banned Iranian director Jafar Panahi is back with another brilliant filmed-in-secret film. Absolutely stunning... The journey is often challenging, but the rewards – heady, emotional, provocative and invigorating – are endless." - Time Out

Iran : une révolution cinématographique by Nader T Homayoun( Visual )

Traces the development of the Iranian film industry, which has always been closely intertwined with the country's tumultuous political history, chronicling how Iranian films reflected contemporaneous society and often presaged social change. It shows how mainstream commercial cinema served as a propaganda tool for both the monarchy and the fundamentalist religious regime, recounts the sporadic efforts of some filmmakers to reveal grimmer social realties, and the struggles against censorship and traditional cinematic formulas by such pioneers as Bahram Beyzai and Sohrab Shahid Saless and pre- and post-Islamic revolutionary 'new wave' filmmakers

Five : 5 long takes dedicated to Yasujiro Ozu by Abbas Kiarostami( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in French and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Acclaimed Iranian filmmaker Abbas Kiarostami (A taste of cherry, Through the olive trees) pays homage to Yasujiro Ozu, the brilliant Japanese filmmaker whose spare but evocative style has been a major influence on Kiarostami's work. Canny and sublime, the 74-minute film is comprised of five long, apparently single takes of a beach on the Caspian Sea, all focusing on the ocean, comprised of virtually no camera movement and enveloped in rapturous natural sound. Richly poetic and shot on a hand-held DV camera, the film features five extended, apparently single-take sequences. One. The camera accompanies a piece of wood with which the waves are toying at the beach. Two. People are walking along by the seaside. Older people stop, look at the waves, then walk away. Three. Indistinct shapes on a beach in winter. A group of dogs. A love story. Four. Ducks noisily cross the frame in one direction, then the other. Five. A pond; nighttime; frogs; a chorus of sounds, then a storm, and finally dawn."--Container

Une fille déguisée en garçon s'est discrètement glissée parmi eux ; elle ne sera pas la seule à tenter de transgresser l'interdiction faite aux femmes d'assister aux manifestations sportives. A l'entrée du stade, elle est démasquée et confiée à la brigade des moeurs qui devra décider de son sort. Enfermée dans un enclos improvisé, elle est très vite rejointe par d'autres filles. Ensemble, elles refusent d'abandonner et usent de toutes les techniques pour voir le match. (www.cinemovies.fr)
