Roxie Theater

A Q&A with producer Ahmad Kiarostami will follow the 6:30pm screening on Saturday, March 17, moderated by Jonathan Marlow (Arbelos / CFI Releasing / Paracme) For what would prove to be his final film, Iranian director Abbas Kiarostami gave himself a challenge: to create a dialogue between his work as a filmmaker and his work as a photographer, bridging the two art forms to which he had dedicated his life. Setting out to reconstruct the moments immediately before and after a photograph is taken, Kiarostami selected twenty-four still images--most of them stark landscapes inhabited only by foraging birds and other wildlife--and digitally animated them into subtly evolving four-and-a-half-minute vignettes, creating a series of poignant studies in movement, perception, and time. A sustained meditation on the process of image making, 24 Frames is a graceful and elegiac farewell from one of the giants of world cinema. Directed by Abbas Kiarostami. 114 minutes. Iran & France. 2017. A Janus Films release. FREE OR DISCOUNTED FOR MEMBERS More shows will be added soon!
