Abbas Kiarostami Focus: Ten + Panel Discussion

30 Jul 2016

★★★★★ “Challenging cinema conceived at the highest pitch of intelligence.” The Guardian
"Profoundly compassionate... funny, wise." Time Out

This screening is followed by a panel discussion with actor Mania Akbari and Saeed Kamali Dehghan, Iran correspondent for The Guardian, hosted by The Guardian film critic Peter Bradshaw.

A masterclass in deriving maximum impact in minimal style, Iranian filmmaker Abbas Kiarostami focuses on ten conversations between a chic divorcée (Mania Akbari) and the passengers in her car. Her exchanges with her young son, a jilted bride, a prostitute, a devout old woman and others shed light on the lives and emotions of those whose voices are seldom heard.

Ten, dir. Abbas Kiarostami, Iran/France 2002, 94 mins
