Harpur Cinema film
24 Frames, Abbas Kiarostami, released posthumously in 2017 (Iran, 114 min.)
7:30 - Friday, October 19 & Sunday, October 21
The final film by Iranian film director Abbas Kiarostami, who was also a poet and a photographer, shows the convergence of two art forms. Instead of filming scenes with a movie camera, Kiarostami used his own still photographs, most of them of landscapes with wild animals, and, using digital techniques, added motion and sound to these images. The animated photographs display a mixture of the real and the imagined, both of which present Kiarostami's unique viewpoint.
"A sustained meditation on the process of image making, 24 Frames is a graceful and elegiac farewell from one of the giants of world cinema" (Janus Films).
