PrintAbbas Kiarostami in Indiana

Close-Up

  1. Thursday, January 23, 2014 9:30 p.m.
Still image from the film Close Up
Close-up is Abbas Kiarostami’s most radical, brilliant work. This fiction-documentary hybrid uses a sensational real-life event— the arrest of a young man on charges that he fraudulently impersonated the well-known filmmaker Mohsen Makhmalbaf—as the basis for a stunning, multilayered investigation into movies, identity, artistic creation, and existence, in which the real people from the case play themselves. With its universal themes and fascinating narrative knots, Close-up resonates with viewers around the world. In Persian 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.
