A year after Abbas Kiarostami’s death, Close-Up Film Center in London will celebrate the art of his cinema by screening some of his rarely seen early films from 5-19 June 2017.
The program ‘Abbas Kiarostami: Early Works’ will show a series of documentary, short and feature films made in the 1970s and 1980s. A documentary on the filmmaker’s life and career as well as his last short film are also included. Film critic Ehsan Khoshbakht has selected the movies and organized the event which is supported by the British Council. A booklet in English about the films will be distributed as a guide for the films being screened. It contains famous critics’ reviews and opinions on Kiarostami’s early films.
