Synopsis

An analysis of the style and vision of Abbas Kiarostami, the iconic Iranian filmmaker, through the lens of his earliest work, particularly his first feature, THE REPORT. This early example of Kiarostami's work provides insight into his poetic, humanistic tendencies, combining allegorical storytelling with a documentary, neo-realist sensibility. The film includes interviews with critics, historians and scholars, including the late Andrew Sarris, provididing a look at how the career of this master began and was shaped.

He has lectured widely, served on numerous juries and organized festivals in Iran and New York.
