FEBRUARY: IRAN - Abbas Kiarostami's CLOSE UP
Sundays at 6pm, Feb 4, 11, 18, 25
Feb 11 introduction by Farbod Honarpisheh
Visiting Humanities Fellow, Humanities Center, University of Pittsburgh
Internationally revered Iranian filmmaker Abbas Kiarostami has created some of the most inventive and transcendent cinema of the last thirty years, and Close-Up is his most radical, brilliant work. This fiction-documentary hybrid uses a real-life sensational event - a young man arrested on charges that he fraudulently impersonated well-known filmmaker Mohsen Makhmalbaf - as the basis for a stunning, multi-layered investigation into movies, identity, artistic creation, and life itself. Abbas Kiarostami, Iran 1990, 1h 37 min
