In recent times of great conflict and intolerance in the world, Jafar Panahi’s films, focusing on the human being in Iran, strips away the boundaries we construct that divide and distinguish one human being from another. An unfamiliar culture and distant place becomes a real experience for us, and one film at a time, Panahi continues his ongoing conversation with humanity, even as he faces difficult restraints within his home country. This dissertation, in honour of Jafar Panahi and Iranian cinema, is a conversation with humanity alike, drawing from various scholarships and sources without discriminating time and place, to compare and supplement Panahi’s view of Iran and the human being, his love for people and the streets they cross every day.
