Jafar Panahi and Iranian actress Behnaz Jafari travel to a small village in northwest Iran to investigate the possible suicide of an aspiring young actress. Content to sit in the car while three generations of women examine their dual oppression, Panahi traverses moral and ideological pathways through rural Iran with trademark heart, charm and wit.

Eight years and four films into a 20-year government-imposed filmmaking ban, Jafar Panahi continues to expand on themes of artistic repression with his latest and most expressly feminist film in over a decade. 3 FACES is at once a gentle prodding at the absurdity of certain cultural traditions and a more somber indictment of their use as an assault on creative expression. Both fictionalized versions of themselves, Panahi and well-known Iranian actress Behnaz Jafari travel to a small village in northwest Iran to investigate the possible suicide of an aspiring young actress. Content to sit in the car while three generations of women contend with their dual oppression as women and actresses, Panahi traverses moral and ideological pathways through rural Iran with trademark heart, charm and intelligence. - Malin Kan

Past-his-prime filmmaker Hasan is having a crisis of ego. A serial killer is offing local filmmakers, and Hasan wants to know why he isn't being targeted. In veteran filmmaker Mani Haghighi';s wonderfully bizarre dark comedy, the satire is heavy and hilarious, and gender stereotypes get smashed right and left.
-----
Hasan is a past-his-prime filmmaker who obsessively worries about his fallen status in the Tehrani creative community. When it becomes clear that a serial killer is picking off relevant local filmmakers one by one, Hasan suddenly has a new insecurity on which to fixate: why hasn't he been killed yet? In veteran filmmaker and AFI FEST alum Mani Haghighi's wonderfully bizarre dark comedy PIG, the satire is heavy and hilarious, and gender stereotypes are taken for a ride. Male directors are suddenly prey, and the actresses they creepily select as their muses are strong and brutally independent.
