76 Minutes and 15 Seconds with Abbas Kiarostami

Back to listing

Abbas Kiarostami's assistant, Seifolla Samadian, was the only person allowed to film the greatly missed artist at work. Samadian has gathered images of Kiarostami working on his films, as well as artistic and photographic installations. The result is an intimate posthumous portrait of an artist in full creative mode, which had its international premiere at the 2016 Mostra di Venezia.

Take Me Home

Abbas Kiarostami's final film is a short. Or a poem. Screened after 76 Minutes and 15 Seconds with Abbas Kiarostami, Take Me Home tirelessly follows a ball. A ball left carelessly in a hallway by a child. A ball that starts heading down the stairs in a little village in the south of Italy. It bounces from one step to another. It escapes. It takes flight.
