Iran | 92 min | NR | DCP | Dir. Abbas Kiarostami and Seyfolah Samadian
TAKE ME HOME is engaging as a film and satisfying as a multimedia piece of art. In Southern Italy, a little boy drops his football at the top of a narrow stone stairway outside his home, As the ball bounces downwards, our eyes are drawn along with it, in an endless rhythm from side to side, as it travels to the bottom. Each perfectly framed tableau could stand as an individual piece of artwork.
76 MINUTES AND 15 SECONDS WITH ABBAS KIAROSTAMI is documentary about the legendary film maker Abbas Kiarostami. A photographer and long time friend of Kiarostami, Seyfolah Samadian has put together some footage of his moments with Kiarostami, his travel photography, film making etc.
