Roads of Kiarostami

Iran, 2006 (MIFF 2006, Documentary Shorts)

Director: Abbas Kiarostami

Yet another thoughtful piece from the Iranian master, the film combines
poetry, photography, classical music, and cinema with the leitmotif of the road. A short experimental work that Abbas Kiarostami made almost en passant.
