Abbas Kiarostami is the most internationally celebrated Iranian cultural figure of the past and current century. A prolific and critically-acclaimed filmmaker, artist, photographer and poet, his work is visually simple and conceptually complex.
This spring, a London-wide programme of events celebrates the achievements of this artist and his impact on contemporary culture and society both inside and outside Iran. The festival of Abbas Kiarostami’s work will raise awareness of the dynamics of cultural creativity in today’s Iran, and is organised by the Iran Heritage Foundation, as part of their tenth anniversary celebrations.
Films, exhibitions, installations, publications, a film workshop, a conference, interviews and ‘In conversations’ will be presented.
Those participating are: BFI Publications, Channel 4, the French Institute, the London Film School, the National Film Theatre, Saqi Books, the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Zelda Cheatle Gallery.
