Art and Experience: The 35th Fajr Film Festival is commemorating Abbas Kiarostami by a poster featuring the legendary Iranian filmmaker.
The poster has been designed for Art and Experience Cinema, a section dedicated to art films and other movies aimed typically at a limited audience.
It also bears verses of one of Kiarostami’s poems reading, “I told the moon my secret, My secret got out when the sun was up.”
Kiarostami, who won awards in many international events, passed away last July at the age of 76. His “Taste of Cherry” won the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival in 1997.
Earlier last week, the organizers of the Fajr Film Festival unveiled the official poster featuring prominent filmmaker Ali Hatami (1944-1996).
The festival will be held in Tehran and several other Iranian cities from January 30 to February 9.
