In his latest film, shot in secret, Iranian director Jafar Panahi explores the subversive power and ethical limits of filmmaking. His No Bears tells three different stories all in one. The main story is about himself, making his fifth film in defiance of the 2010 ban that forbade him from making films and leaving Iran. From a small village near the Turkish border, he is remotely directing a film crew. The story of the film he’s directing is based on the real-life story of the main characters, two refugees from Iran who are trying to flee to Europe. Panahi’s stay in the small village is the setting for a third story about a forbidden love.
