Abbas Kiarostami: A Retrospective

1997 • 99 minutes • Color • 1.66:1 aspect ratio • Screening format: 4K DCP

Winner of the Palme d’Or at the 1997 Cannes Film Festival, Kiarostami’s Taste of Cherry is an emotionally complex meditation on life and death. Middle-aged Mr. Badii (Homayoun Ershadi) drives through the hilly outskirts of Tehran, searching for someone to rescue or bury him. Along the way, he picks up three passengers, all from different walks of life, eliciting different views on mortality and individual choice.
