Among the many filmmakers mourning Abbas Kiarostami is Martin Scorsese, who over the weekend delivered a 12-minute remembrance at New York City’s School of Visual Arts. Scorsese, who’s long stood out as one of Hollywood’s most eclectic, devoted cinephiles, was a friend of the revered Iranian filmmaker for more than a decade and said during his remarks that he was “still prepping for the meeting next year” that the two planned to have. Kiarostami died on July 4 at the age of 76.

Scorsese recalls first meeting Kiarostami at the Cannes Film Festival while both serving on the Cinéfondation jury, which he was “a little cautious” for, as the icon of Iranian cinema’s reputation preceded him. Once meeting him, Scorsese found Kiarostami to be “elegant, eloquent, very quiet, very careful with his words »

His sons Ahmad and Bahman attended a funeral service in Paris on Friday, but Ahmad was unable to travel to Iran due to security concerns related to his involvement in dissident organizations.

Watch: Abbas Kiarostami’s Clever Black-And-White Debut Short, ‘The Bread and Alley’

5 July 2016 7:26 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Yesterday, legendary Iranian filmmaker Abbas Kiarostami died at the age of 76. The man behind such internationally acclaimed classics like “Close-Up,” “The Taste of Cherry,” “The Wind Will Carry Us,” and “Certified Copy,” Kiarostami’s uniquely personal cinematic style influenced countless directors who followed him, and opened the entire world to a whole generation of cinephiles. But before he shook the world with his features, he made his directorial debut in 1970 with “The Bread and Alley,” a neo-realistic short film about a little boy, a loaf of bread, and a hungry dog. Watch it below.

Rip Abbas Kiarostami (1940-2016)

5 July 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

The world just lost another master artist yesterday, after the recent passing of Michael Cimino and Elie Wiesel. Abbas Kiarostami has passed away after a battle with gastrointestinal cancer.

Kiarostami's blended fiction and non-fiction during his over forty year career in film. One of the most prominent Iranian filmmakers, he had been a mainstay of the Cannes Film Festival, jurying multiple times and winning the Palme d'Or in 1997 for Taste of Cherry. His most recent films Certified Copy and Like Someone in Love ventured out of Iran, but it's his homegrown meditations on death like Cherry and The Wind Will Carry Us are what instantly come to mind on this sad news.

Kiarostami wasn't just a film artist but a poet as well, though poetic language heightened much of his film work. His films were soulfully awake and fiercely personal - Cherry being the brusing and enlightening standout, with Copy's »

Critic's Notebook: Abbas Kiarostami, the Iranian Artist Who Led the Way for Young Filmmakers

5 July 2016 5:12 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

With the death of Abbas Kiarostami, Iran’s leading director, world cinema loses one of its true guiding lights. His work in the 1980s, beginning with the utterly simple tale of anguished childhood Where Is the Friend’s Home?, earned him international recognition, while the purity of its documentary, no-budget style and compassionate humanism was much imitated by young directors from emerging countries. As he evolved as a filmmaker with award-winning features like Close Up, Taste of Cherry (Palme d’Or, 1997) and The Wind Will Carry Us (Grand Jury Prize in Venice, 1999), his creativity simultaneously blossomed in other media.

Ramin Bahrani Remembers Abbas Kiarostami: ‘Life Is Not a Straight Line’

4 July 2016 8:47 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Editor’s note: Filmmaker Ramin Bahrani has been a major presence in American independent film since his 2005 debut, “Man Push Cart.” His most recent film, “99 Homes,” was released last year. The filmmaker’s style in his early work is heavily influenced by the late Abbas Kiarostami, with whom Bahrani formed a relationship over the course of his career. With the news of Kiarostami’s death at the age of 76, Bahrani shared the following tribute to his longtime mentor.

When I saw “Where is the Friend’s House?” as a teenager, my path as a burgeoning filmmaker was irrevocably altered. I immediately tracked down VHS copies (badly dubbed, pirated) of “Close Up” and “Life and Nothing Else…” and watched them in my hometown of Winston-Salem, Nc, wondering how the prosaic can be revealed with such a profound depth of poetry. Can cinema be like this?

Abbas Kiarostami Remembered: Why He Was Iran’s Essential Filmmaker — Critic’s Notebook

4 July 2016 7:06 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

One of the most interesting collisions of the public perception of Iran’s Islamic state and its reality is how, out of an apparently repressive state hostile to the creative arts, Abbas Kiarostami became the essential free filmmaker. “Freedom” is always a relative term when it comes to cinema, which, like politics, unfortunately runs on money. But it’s easy to spot the genuinely free filmmakers when they come along. Despite their varying struggles to get their movies made, the work that results is directly personal and unbound by prevailing cultural trends and diktats. They range from Jean Vigo to Kidlat Tahimik, Pedro Costa to Shirley Clarke, Stan Brakhage to Jose Luis Guerin. Kiarostami was the free filmmaker par excellence, since he managed to find his ever-developing acute approach to modernism through whatever system in which he might find himself working.

Abbas Kiarostami Dead at 76

4 July 2016 1:03 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

A year that may be most remembered for the number of monumental artists who passed during its twelve months has just dealt one of its greatest losses: various Iranian news outlets are reporting that Abbas Kiarostami — the man who changed many a Western viewer’s conception of his native country with masterpieces such as Close-Up, Taste of Cherry, the Koker Trilogy, Like Someone in Love, Certified Copy, Ten, and The Wind Will Carry Us, to name but a few — has passed away at age 76 in Paris, following an extended battle with gastrointestinal cancer.

Pinpointing the particulars of Kiarostami’s oeuvre is a task too large for what is, admittedly, a quickly assembled obituary, and those who’ve known his work longer will do a more probing job at various places — how many non-Western artists earn this level of love upon passing away, anyhow? — so I’ll tread lightly by noting, »

Iranian Filmmaker Abbas Kiarostami Dies at 76

4 July 2016 12:56 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Iranian director Abbas Kiarostami, whose 1997 film “Taste of Cherry” won the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival, has died in Paris. He was 76.

Iran’s Isna news agency confirmed his death. He had been receiving treatment for gastrointestinal cancer and had traveled to France for a series of operations.

Often applying a non-narrative and experimental approach, the poetic and highly visual filmmaker was revered by cineastes around the world. “Film begins with Dw Griffith and ends with Abbas Kiarostami,” director Jean-Luc Godard, with whom he shared a devotion to breaking cinematic rules, once said.

Born in Tehran, he started the film department at Kanun, Iran’s Institute for the Intellectual Development of Children and Young Adults. He made his first film, “Bread and Alley” while running the institute.

Kiarostami stayed in Iran after the revolution, while other filmmakers of the Iranian New Wave left the country to seek more creative freedom. »

Abbas Kiarostami, Palme d’Or-Winning Director Of ‘Taste Of Cherry’ And ‘Certified Copy,’ Dies At 76

4 July 2016 12:48 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Palme d’Or-winning Iranian filmmaker Abbas Kiarostami, best known for films like “Taste of Cherry” (which earned him the Cannes accolade in 1997), “Close-Up” and “Certified Copy,” has died. He was 76.

The news was first reported by the Iranian Students’ New Agency (Isna) on Monday afternoon, who wrote “Abbas Kiarostami, who had travelled to France for treatment, has died.” Other news outlets, including The Guardian, have also begun reporting the news.

Born in 1940 in Tehran, the filmmaker first studied painting at the University of Tehran; later, he worked as a graphic designer and commercial director. Kiarostami credited a job in the film department at Kanun (the Centre for the Intellectual Development of Children and Young Adults) for shaping him into a filmmaker.

He made his first feature, “The Report,” in 1977, just two years before the 1979 revolution that saw so many of his creative peers leave the country. Kiarostami, however, stayed and »

R.I.P. Abbas Kiarostami

4 July 2016 12:06 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Iranian filmmaker Abbas Kiarostami has died in Paris at the age of 76. The acclaimed helmer had been receiving treatment for gastrointestinal cancer and had traveled to France for a series of operations.

The Tehran-born Kiarostami first started making shorts, documentaries and local films back in the 1970s and stayed in Iran after the revolution where he made the famed Koker trilogy. He first came to prominence on the international scene with 1990's "Close-Up" in which he got the actual people in a real-life incident to re-enact events in a man defrauds a family and ultimately went to trial.

His 1997 film "Taste of Cherry," about a man searching for someone to bury him after he commits suicide, won the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival. He followed that with "The Wind Will Carry Us," "Ten," "Tickets" and "Shirin" along with his most recent and widely viewed films - the Juliette Binoche »
