A presentation by Nader Takmil Homayoun in Berkeley


Presented by Berkeley Lecture Series


The program will include the screening of the documentary film Iran: A Cinematographic Revolution followed by discussion with Nader Takmil Homayoun, Director, Visiting from France.


Nader Takmil Homayoun was born in Paris and studied filmmaking in France at l'École Nationale Supéneure des Metiers de l'Image et du son (FEMIS). He has directed several short films including Cache-cache (1995), Autour de Mortin (1997), Les Fleurs de l'Algérien  (1998) and C'est pour bientot (2000). Iran: A Cinematographic Revolution (2006) is his first feature-length documentary.


"This documentary explores Iranian cinema through a compelling blend of archival footage, excerpts from representative and landmark Iranian films, and interviews with Iranian filmmakers, film critics and film historians.  It shows the struggles against censorship and traditional cinematic formulas by such pioneers as Bahram Beyzai, Sohrab Shahid Saless and Parviz Kimiavi and pre- and post-Islamic revolutionary 'new wave' filmmakers such as Amir Naderi, Rakhshan Bani-Etemad, Dariush Mehrjui, Mohsen Makhmalbaf, Jafar Panahi, Bahman Ghobadi and Abbas Kiarostami.


IRAN: A CINEMATOGRAPHIC REVOLUTION reveals the changing social functions of Iranian cinema and the artistic struggle of its filmmakers."
