Taste of Cherry

Still image from the film Taste of Cherry
Winner of the Palme d’Or at the 1997 Cannes Film Festival, Iranian auteur Abbas Kiarostami’s Taste of Cherry is an emotionally complex meditation on life and death. Middle-aged Mr. Badii (Homayoun Ershadi) drives through the hilly outskirts of Tehran—searching for someone to rescue or bury him. In Farsi language with English subtitles. (35mm presentation)

Due to a schedule change, director Abbas Kiarostami will not be present at this screening. He is now scheduled to be present for events on April 6 & 7.
