Iranian defiant director Jafar Panahi finds another way of working around a ban from making films — this time by posing as an unlikely cabbie. The 54-year-old is revered by art houses and film festivals, but his work is outlawed in Iran, where the government considers it subversive. Panahi was jailed in 2010 for “propaganda against the regime” and banned from making films for 20 years.

A global overview of the ravages of climate change as told through the experiences of communities on the front lines. From Montana’s Powder River Basin to the Alberta Tar Sands, from the coast of South India to Beijing and beyond, partners Avi Lewis and Naomi Klein (who also narrates) weave together emotional stories of struggle and survival by communities that are forced into activism against the energy behemoths with surprising results.

Inspired by Naomi Klein’s international bestselling book of the same title, the movie builds to her most controversial and exciting thesis: we can seize the existential crisis of climate change to transform our failed economic system into something radically better.

Wendy is a fiery Manhattan author whose husband has just left her for a younger woman; Darwan is a soft-spoken taxi driver from India on the verge of an arranged marriage. As Wendy sets out to reclaim her independence, she runs into a barrier common to many lifelong New Yorkers: she’s never learned to drive. When Wendy hires Darwan to teach her, her unraveling life and his calm restraint seem like an awkward fit. But as he shows her how to take control of the wheel, and she coaches him on how to impress a woman, their unlikely friendship awakens them to the joy, humor, and love in starting life anew.

A sewage worker’s dead body is found inside a manhole in Mumbai. An ageing folk singer is arrested and accused of performing an inflammatory song, which may have incited the worker to commit suicide. The trial unfolds in a lower court, where the hopes and dreams of the city’s ordinary people play out. Forging these fates are the lawyers and judge, who are observed in their personal lives beyond the theatre of the courtroom.
