Take Me Home  (Iran, 2016)

Produced in Italy, Kiarostami’s delightful, beguiling final film evokes The Red Balloon by way of Italo Calvino when a young boy loses control of a soccer ball that then bounces down a seemingly endless series of stone steps.

DCP, b&w, 16 min.  Director: Abbas Kiarostami.  Editor: Adel Yaraghi.  Music: Peter Soleymanipour.  With: Biagio di Tonno.

Acclaimed photographer Seifollah Samadian, a long-time collaborator with Abbas Kiarostami, turns years of behind-the-scenes footage shot during their close creative partnership into a beautiful, understated and inspiring tribute to this giant of cinema by simply allowing us to watch, without commentary, Kiarostami at work.
