Details

This clandestine documentary, shot partially on an iPhone and smuggled into France in a cake for a last-minute submission to Cannes, depicts the day-to-day life of acclaimed director Jafar Panahi (Offside, The Circle) during his house arrest in his Tehran apartment. While appealing his sentence, six years in prison and a 20 year ban from filmmaking, Panahi is seen talking to his family and lawyer on the phone, discussing his plight with Mirtahmasb.

Critics Consensus: 

Through simple means and filming, This is Not a Film presents a vital political statement and a snapshot of life in Iran as enemy of the state.
