In Memory of Abbas Kiarostami

 

Tuesday, July 4th will be the one-year anniversary of Abbas Kiarostami's passing. He died last year on July 4th, 2016. Right before screening our Docunight movie on Wednesday, we’re planning to spend a few minutes to talk about Mr. Kiarostami, his biography and his shiny carrier as a film director, screenwriter, photographer, and producer. All attendees are welcome to share any memory/ stories they may have from him or any of his movies. Light refreshments will be served.

Acclaimed photographer Seifollah Samadian, a long-time collaborator with Abbas Kiarostami, turns years of behind-the-scenes footage shot during their close creative partnership into a beautiful, understated and inspiring tribute to this giant of cinema by simply allowing us to watch, without commentary, Kiarostami at work.

Hosted by the Graduate Student Association of Iranians at Duke. Organized by Docunight (Iran via Documentaries) and Co-sponsored by Iranian Cultural Society of North Carolina (ICSNC)
