" just about all of Kiarostami’s work, it thrives in the rift between dreams and waking life, between artifice and reality; it movingly illustrates how cinema’s true power is not to identify that divide, but rather to erase it." - IndieWire

Los Angeles Premiere!

24 Frames  (Iran, 2017)

Director Abbas Kiarostami’s final film, completed after his death under the supervision of his son Ahmad, is structured as a series of two dozen, beautifully composed, black-and-white still images—the frames of the title—that Kiarostami brings to animated life. Wintry scenes predominate with animals—birds, cows, sheep, a cat—the only living presence found throughout.  Captivating and curious, it invites meditation, on the nature of the moving image, the transformative power of art, and the legacy of a life spent deeply, movingly engaged with both.

DCP, color, in Persian with English subtitles, 114 min.  Director: Abbas Kiarostami.
