UCLA Film & Television Archive is proud to continue its long tradition tracing the unfolding of Iran's fascinating national cinema. Continually offering compelling new voices and visions, Iranian film responds to a rich storytelling heritage and enters into crucial dialogue with other world cultural and artistic traditions in its unique interplay of social inquiry and formal experimentation. This edition of the UCLA Celebration of Iranian Cinema offers a panoply of genres and storytelling modes, sampling the contributions of an array of film artists, working in widely varying settings and focused on diverse topics.
As in recent years, it is anticipated that some filmmakers represented in this program will be present. Please check www.cinema.ucla.edu, for updates on in-person guests.
