‘Kiarostami Continues’ New Documentary on Late Iran Director Kiarostami Produced
Art and Experience: Iranian director Ehsan Naji has produced a new film titled ‘Kiarostami Continues’.
The production stages of the 118-minute documentary started in 2016 and ended in early 2017.
Naji told media that the base of the documentary is like Kiarostami’s “Life, and Nothing More…,” but the difference is that the subject is the late director himself.
Abbas Kiarostami, who died in July 2016, was an Iranian film director, whose ‘Taste of Cherry’ grabbed the Palme d’Or at the 1997 Cannes Film Festival.
He is mostly known as a screenwriter, film editor, art director and producer as well as a poet, photographer, painter, illustrator, and graphic designer.
The cinematic works by the internationally acclaimed filmmaker have been hailed by various festivals around the world.
