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.
