UW CInematheque - Abbas Kiarostami: The Koker Trilogy and More
Through the Olive Trees (Zire Darakhatan Zeyton) | Iran | 1994 | DCP | 103 min. | Persian with English subtitles Director: Abbas Kiarostami
During the making of a film that looks suspiciously similar to Kiarostami’s And Life Goes On (screening Oct. 4), a director faces challenges from his cast. To be more precise, the leading lady won’t speak to the leading man – on camera or off! Kiarostami’s wonderful comedy about movie-making is also a gorgeously photographed story of class-conflict and thwarted romance. Preceded by Kiarostami’s short film The Chorus (1982, 17 min.).
