Abbas Kiarostami Retrospective. Before the Revolution

Film and Nothing More…: Abbas Kiarostami Retrospective


The first section in the retrospective includes early shorts and features made in the 1970s, before the Islamic Revolution—and Kiarostami’s personal revolution that transformed his creative vision.

His early films shot at Kanun (Institute for Intellectual Development of Children and Young Adults) are often described as neorealist. However, in these works, Kiarostami already liberated film from the constraints of narrative and the conventions of realism. His very first shorts (The Bread and Alley, Breaktime) and features (The Experience, The Traveler, A Wedding Suit) contain the themes of travel and the far journey, human choice, and the relationship between the copy and the original—which became central in his later work.
