To Love and Be Loved: 10 Films by Abbas Kiarostami
Sep. 11–17, 2019
We are thrilled to present this retrospective of the work of the groundbreaking Iranian filmmaker whose impact has been—and continues to be—felt around the world. “Film begins with D. W. Griffith and ends with Abbas Kiarostami,” said Jean-Luc Godard. Throughout his life, Kiarostami (1940–2016), the most acclaimed and influential of Iran’s major filmmakers, also devoted himself to poetry, photography, and education. These passions can be seen in his cinema work, which are noted for their unusual mixtures of simplicity and complexity and fictional and documentary elements.
