The fifth section of the retrospective presents Kiarostami’s later films shot in the late 2000s and early 2010s.
Already an influential director, in his later years, Kiarostami continued to make conceptual works experimenting with language, form, and our relationship with film (Shirin, 24 Frames), radically developing the poetics and the visual strategy of his earlier films. In this period, he also shot his first feature outside Iran. Like his last short Take Me Home, Certified Copy was filmed in Italy, the homeland of neorealism, which had influenced Kiarostami's early works. Like Someone in Love was made in Japan, the country of Yasujiro Ozu, to whom Kiarostami had dedicated his experimental film Five. His later period is also marked by collaborations with French star Juliette Binoche, who featured in Shirin and won a Palm d’Or for her lead in the clever Certified Copy.
