So Much to Teach Us: Kiarostami Films Iran

From The Traveler to Ten, Abbas Kiarostami’s films offer an inside, delicate look at Iran that the world, including most Iranians, has never witnessed. Kiarostami accomplished this with tremendous innovation. World Cinema has learned much from these films, and recognized this with countless commendations – notably the Palme d’Or at Cannes. These 8 films provide an education about Iran’s people and a profound take on the human mind and soul – cinema’s original promise to the world.

Thanks to Owen Shapiro and Syracuse University for their partnership. Special thanks to Jim and Roberta Sherman and the Ove W Jorgensen Foundation, whose gifts helped make these programs possible. Because of their generous support, all screenings are free, but ticketed.
