UCLA Celebration of Iranian Cinema Past

Saturday, Apr 25, 2015 - Los Angeles, CA, United States

In-person:
Rakhshan Banietemad (4/25); Shahram Mokri (4/26); Kamran Heidari (4/27); Sepideh Farsi (5/8).

The Archive is pleased to once again explore the diverse currents of Iranian cinema with its annual series highlighting recent and classic films from Iran and the Iranian diaspora. In the wake of Asghar Farhadi’s Best Foreign Language Film Oscar win for A Separation in 2011, the depth and breadth of Iranian cinema today continues to amaze even as the challenges faced by its filmmakers remain of concern. While established masters continue to make their unique voices heard, including writer-director Rakhshan Banietemad, whose award-winning Tales opens this year’s series, newer filmmakers continue to captivate. Farhadi’s influence can be felt in a number of outstanding, tightly-wound contemporary dramas by emerging directors (Melbourne, I’m Not Angry), while others are charting radically different paths visually and narratively (Fish & Cat, 316). It’s a heady mix that makes this a particularly fascinating moment to be surveying the landscape of this always invigorating national cinema. As in recent years, it is anticipated that some filmmakers will appear in person to discuss their work. Please check our website for updates on in-person guests.
