This Is Not a Film 

When: Tue., March 31 2015
Price: $11
This 2011 documentary follows Iranian filmmaker Jafar Panahi under house arrest on a charge of "propaganda against the regime." He awaits an appeal of his six-year prison sentence and 20-year ban on making movies, leaving the country, and giving interviews to media. "This may not be a film," film critic J.R. Jones writes, "but it's a moving statement of defiance and despair."
