Film Classics in 35mm! Abbas Kiarostami, 1940-2016


Iran | 1997 | Abbas Kiarostami

Contemporary art cinema took a major hit with the July death of Iranian master Abbas Kiarostami. His beautiful and sensitive films lit up the Cinematheque screen for three decades. We remember him tonight with the film that won the Palme d’Or at the 1997 Cannes Film Festival. It’s a moving, minimalist masterpiece about a solitary man contemplating suicide as he drives through the hills outside Tehran in search of someone who will bury, or save, him. Subtitles. 95 min.

Special admission $11; members, CIA & CSU I.D. holders, and those age 25 & under $8; no passes, twofers, or radio winners.
