Abbas Kiarostami: A Retrospective

1999 • 118 minutes • Color • 1.85:1 aspect ratio Screening format: 4K DCP

A TV crew from Tehran arrives in a remote Kurdish village to film an unusual funeral ceremony but are stymied when the old woman they expect to die clings to life. A fablelike story about professional and personal frustration, this droll drama is the most tantalizingly opaque and allusive of Kiarostami’s films, containing numerous references to poetry and several key figures (including the old woman) who are never seen.
