Abbas Kiarostami: A Retrospective

1990 • 98 minutes • Color • 1.33:1 aspect ratio • Screening format: 2K DCP

This fiction-documentary hybrid uses a sensational real-life event—the arrest of a young man on charges that he fraudulently impersonated the well-known filmmaker Mohsen Makhmalbaf—as the basis for a stunning, multilayered investigation into movies, identity, artistic creation, and existence, in which the real people from the case play themselves. With its universal themes and fascinating narrative knots, Close-up—one of Kiarostami’s most radical, brilliant works—has resonated with viewers around the world.
