The Mirror to play in New York City

Readers in the New York City area might want to take note of the following:

As part of its series of films from Iran, the Film Society of Lincoln Center is presenting eight screenings of The Mirror ( Ahyheh, 1997, 95 minutes), directed by Jafar Panahi, over the next week. This remarkable film recounts the story of a young girl who rebels against her role in a film and perhaps more than that. The story of Panahi's first film, The White Balloon, was written by fellow film director Abbas Kiarostami.

Arts editor David Walsh discussed the film in an article on the 1997 Toronto film festival:

Walsh also conducted an interview with Jafar Panahi in Toronto:
