Director: Jafar Panahi
The Accordion tells of the human drive for material survival against a backdrop of religious intolerance. Two young street performers in Tehran, a boy and a girl, have their accordion confiscated following an incident, which they must learn to accept in order to survive.
In 2010, dissident director Jafar Panahi received a six-year jail sentence in Iran and was forbidden from making films or giving media interviews for 20 years.
