PrintAbbas Kiarostami in Indiana

Where is the Friend’s House

Still image from the film Where is the Friend's Home
The first of three films known as Abbas Kiarostami’s Koker Trilogy, Where is the Friend's Home? is the rather simple story of an 8 year old boy who mistakenly takes a friend’s notebook and begins his quest to return it, as he knows that his friend will be punished for not having it. In an effort to infuse a sense of realism for the people in rural Iran, Kiarostami enlists non-actors to play the roles of all the school children. The result is an incredibly humanist, engaging and dramatic film. In Farsi language with English subtitles. (Digital 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.
