Cinema Asia [electronic resource]: Iran

Forbidden to depict sex, obscenity, or violence, Iranian filmmakers carefully choose their subjects and practice skillfully indirect, allegorical storytelling. Movies featuring children-filled with intimacy and social commentary that would be harder to realize using adults-have become common. This program examines the evolution and enduring individuality of Iran's film industry while envisioning its future both at home and abroad. Interviews with directors Majid Majidi and Abbas Kiarostami, and with film scholar Dr. Hamid Naficy, provide an inside look at the past and potential of the Iranian cinema. Kanun, a cultural organization central to the development of Iranian film, is also studied. Several film excerpts are included.
