After Kiarostami: Reflections on the Master Filmmaker a Year After His Death

4 July 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

My returning to work on a book about Iranian cinema that I’d put aside years ago, followed by the decision to produce the book independently, and then the choice of supporting this effort with an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign were all things set in motion by one terrible event: the death of Abbas Kiarostami.

That happened last July 4 in Paris, and it was a profound shock. I knew Kiarostami had been hospitalized for months in Tehran, but gleaned that he had turned a corner and was on the mend. Though it seemed his recuperation would take months, he had already mapped out plans for a new feature to be shot in China, and even in his hospital bed was putting finishing touches on the partly computer-generated feature “24 Frames” (which premiered in Cannes and will have a U.S. opening in the coming months).

His unexpected death was a jolt not »

24 Frames review: Abbas Kiarostami’s posthumous work screens at the 70th Festival de Cannes as part of its 70th birthday celebrations.

24 Frames review by Paul Heath at the 2017 Festival de Cannes.

24 Frames review

Presented at the 70th Cannes Film Festival as part of their anniversary celebrations, is Iranian filmmaker Abbas Kiarostami’s final work, completed after his death, the post-production overseen by his son Ahmad. The film, a passion project from the director who brought us the likes of Close Up and Taste Of Cherry, appears as a special event is split into 24 separate chunks, each one represented by a different photograph. The filmmaker’s intention is show the events leading up to the point in which the photo was taken, and indeed the moments afterwards, no one the same but each one as impactful in their own way.

The Best Movies to Ever Win Cannes’ Palme d’Or — IndieWire Critic Survey

15 May 2017 11:57 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: In honor of the Cannes Film Festival, the 70th edition of which starts this week, what is the best film to ever win the coveted Palme d’Or?

For a complete list of Palme d’Or winners, click here.

This question is impossible because I clearly haven’t seen all 40 Palme d’Or winners (it’s on my to do list, I swear). But I could easily say “Apocalypse Now,” “Paris, Texas,” “Taxi Driver,” “Amour,” or even “Pulp Fiction.” But since this is a personal question, I have to say “The Tree of Life.” No film has moved me »

Abbas Kiarostami was, as Martin Scorsese put it, ‘one of those rare artists with a special knowledge of the world,'” said WGA West President Howard A. Rodman. “As a founding father of the New Iranian Cinema, Kiarostami navigated tricky political and cultural terrains with courage and grace. Yet the impact of his work – and his life – is felt far outside the borders of his native land. Kiarostami’s films were fiction, were documentary, were transcendent. He expanded cinematic narrative for all of us, »
