A Close-Up of Abbas Kiarostami
The pioneer of Iranian neo- (or meta-) neo-realism reinvented himself as an nouvelle Pirandellian international auteur with Certified Copy and his new Like Someone in Love (set to open February 15). A comprehensive, but not complete, selection of Kiarostami’s narratives, movies for children, documentaries, and digital experiments, this ten-day retrospective spans the seventy-three-year-old filmmaker’s entire career, with particular emphasis on his lesser-known films from the pre-Islamic Republic 1970s.
A complete schedule of the retrospective is available on the Film Society of Lincoln Center website.
