Jafar Panahi

Films by JAFAR PANAHI (*1960) have won many awards, including The Mirror (1997), The Circle (2000) and Offside (2006) making him one of Iran's most important independent film-makers.

The Accordion is focused on two young musicians playing the accordion and the tablas to earn their living. One day, while they are playing in front of a mosque, a mullah commandeers their accordion, their only means of survival. They begin to look for the mullah and suddenly, in the maze of the bazaar, they recognize the sound of their accordion and discover that same mullah sitting on the floor and begging while playing their instrument…
