Iran: A Cinematographic Revolution

2007 Rated NR 1hr 38m

Despite political turmoil and cultural isolation -- and sometimes even because of them -- Iran has served as fertile ground for filmmakers for more than seven decades, as witnessed by this tribute to Persian cinema from Nader Takmil Homayoun. From escapism to social realism, the new wave of the 1970s and the more poetic films of recent years, this homage traces the history of Iranian filmmaking through a fascinating array of clips and interviews.
