Berlin: Banned Iranian Helmer Jafar Panahi's 'Taxi' Takes Golden Bear

A film by dissident Iranian director Jafar Panahi has won the Golden Bear, the Berlin Film Festival's top prize.

Taxi is Panahi's third film since he was banned from making films by the Iranian authorities and forbidden from travelling in 2010.

It was filmed covertly as the director drove a taxi around Tehran.

British stars Sir Tom Courtenay and Charlotte Rampling won best actor and actress for their roles as a married couple in Andrew Haigh's 45 Years.

Taxi sees Panahi share his thoughts on contemporary Iran with passengers in the back of his cab, using a mounted dashboard camera to evade the scrutiny of the Iranian authorities.

It was one of 19 films vying for the prestigious Golden Bear award, including more high-profile fare from directors such as Wim Wenders, Terence Malick and Peter Greenaway.
