Panah Panahi’s first feature is at once a realistic and surreal remembrance of the last trip his family took together. Such a mood mixture is to be expected since Panah’s filmmaker father Jafar (whose Taxi we showed in 2015) is now incarcerated in Tehran’s notorious Evin prison. Winner of the 2021 London Film Festival’s best film award. “Hit the Road packs humour and heartbreak into an oddball Iranian family’s SUV.” Leigh Singer, Sight and Sound.
