Still under house arrest for “propaganda against the Islamic Republic,” the Iranian director has no intention of ceasing to create. “Three Faces” follows three actresses from three different eras of film. Critics believe it to be exposing of Iranian culture and hinting towards Panahi’s angst in regards to his arrest. In addition, he effortlessly maintains feminist principles thought the picture.
