“I always wonder to what extent the artist aims to depict the reality of a scene,” the late Abbas Kiarostami wrote of what would be his final film. “Painters capture only one frame of reality and nothing before or after it... I decided to use the photos I had taken through the years. I included four minutes and thirty seconds of what I imagined might have taken place before or after each image that I had captured.”

The film consists of twenty-four shots, mostly of Kiarostami’s own photographs, that he brought to life using computer animation. As the Guardian’s Xan Brooks enthused, this “bizarre, experimental ghost-film” is a “mesmeric glimpse into Abbas Kiarostami’s mysterious mind.” (Dir.: Abbas Kiarostami, Iran/France, 2017, 120 min., DCP, no dialogue)
