Unknown Kiarostami. New Digital Restoration!

HOMEWORK

MASHGH-E SHAB
Iran | 1989 | Abbas Kiarostami

HOMEWORK film still

Made between two of his greatest features, Where Is the Friend’s House? and Close-Up, Abbas Kiarostami’s nonfiction movie was sparked by his own son’s scholastic problems. He interviews Iranian first- and second-graders about their homework load (a problem compounded by illiterate parents) and also their school’s emphasis on punishment rather than encouragement. The result is lyrical, moving, and quietly radical. Cleveland revival premiere. Subtitles. DCP. 78 min
