Hong Kong festival to wrap up with “24 Frames”
Art and Experience: The Hong Kong 2017 Summer International Film Festival will come to an end by a screening of Iranian filmmaker Abbas Kiarostami’s last experimental movie “24 Frames” on August 29.
Kiarostami completed “24 Frames” months before his death in July 2016. “It began with musings on epochal paintings and evolved with the photographs I had taken over the years,” Kiarostami once said about his film.
The festival is scheduled to open with “Paradox” by Hong Kong’s prominent director Wilson Yip on August 15.
About forty new and classic films from several countries are scheduled to go on screen at the festival.
