All in Art Film

The UCLA Celebration of Iranian Cinema

The UCLA Celebration of Iranian Cinema, sponsored by Farhang Foundation and hosted at the Billy Wilder Theater, will be screening contemporary Iranian films over a two week period beginning May 6th. And as a tribute to the canon of artistic achievements by the late contemporary filmmaker Abbas Kiarostami there will be Los Angeles premier screenings of Life and a Day, Ten, and Take Me Home. Supplementing this tribute will be the showing of 76 Minutes and 15 Seconds, directed by Seifollah Samadian, which reveals the behind-the-scenes of the creative process of Kiarostami, who helped revolutionize contemporary Iranian film in the 1970s.
