DIVE INTO THE WORK OF AN IRANIAN MASTER WITH OUR RETROSPECTIVE “A CLOSE-UP OF ABBAS KIAROSTAMI”

From sublime shorts and early documentaries and narratives on through a stunning string of films in the 1990s and a fascinating and wide-ranging exploration of the possibilities of digital video in the new century, the cinema of Abbas Kiarostami stands as one of contemporary cinema's most vital and important statements. This comprehensive survey offers audiences a rare chance to take in the full measure of a grand master. Series programmed by Robert Koehler.

Writer-director Abbas Kiarostami holds a degree in fine arts and started the film division at the Center for Intellectual Development of Children and Young Adults at the age of 30, which has since produced works by more than a dozen Iranian filmmakers. Kiarostami has been nominated for the Palme d'Or fives times and won for Taste of Cherry in 1997.
