A retrospective of the works of Iranian filmaker and photographer Jafar Panahi is running at the Pompidou Centre in Paris until November 13. In 2011, a court in Iran banned him from making films for 20 years, and sentenced him to six-years in prison which he hasn't served yet, for making a controversial film. RFI's Rosslyn Hyams has been to visit the exhibition.
