Episode Summary

Inside Iranian Cinema Full Length
In this special episode of The Vice Guide to Film, we explore Iranian Filmmaking. With as much political attention as Iran gets, it's fascinating to see the juxtaposition between what FOX News is warning about Iran and the beautifully touching, critically-acclaimed motion pictures that are being made within its borders. Ranked as one of the most dangerous countries for journalists to enter, the Vice crew tried for a year and a half to obtain a legitimate visa and were finally successful with the help of the 3rd International Urban Film Festival. In Tehran, Vice explores the evolution of Iranian Cinema in relation to the country's rich cultural history, and some of the people responsible for the amazing storytelling that Iranians are known for today. By the way, did you think Annette Bening was being held hostage? Well, she's not.moreless
