Abbas Kiarostami

Until Thu 27 Jul 

A year ago, the global cinema community lost one of its most important figures in Abbas Kiarostami.

A poetic, influential filmmaker from the Iranian capital of Tehran, his background was in painting and artistic design. Kiarostami’s early film work stemmed from the emergence of the ‘Iranian New Wave’ in the 1960s/1970s and a prolific nature saw him involved in over 40 films - including shorts and documentaries - across his 47 year filmography.

His final project, 24 Frames, premiered at Cannes in 2017.

Following last month’s trio of Jacques Becker films, we’re delighted to present three films from the late, great Abbas Kiarostami.
