Kiarostami’s ‘Close-Up’ Set for Screening in Connecticut

The US art organization Real Art Ways will start a new program titled ‘Behind the Scenes’ from March 10, where a movie by renowned Iranian filmmaker Abbas Kiarostami is scheduled to be screened along with films by four other prominent directors.
The feature film ‘Close-Up’, which made Kiarostami’s reputation in the West, will be the last film in the list which will be shown April 28, Honaronline reported.
With all screenings on Thursdays, ‘Bombshell’ by Victor Fleming, ‘Face in the Crowd’ by Elia Kazan, “Day for Night’ by Francois Truffaut and ‘The Truman Show’ by Peter Weir are the other movies in the series.
The fiction-documentary ‘Close-Up’ uses a sensational real-life event - the arrest of a young man on charges that he fraudulently impersonated the well-known filmmaker Mohsen Makhmalbaf - as the basis for a stunning, multilayered investigation into movies, identity, artistic creation, and existence, in which the real people from the case play themselves.
Modeled after a college Introduction to Film Studies course, the series features lively and engaging discussions with J. D. Connor, assistant professor of History and Film & Media Studies at Yale University. Participants will learn how to view the five classic and contemporary films with a critical eye and engage with the screen on a deeper level.
Real Art Ways has been showing the best of indie cinema since 1996. A non-profit art space established in 1975, it is located in the Parkville neighborhood of Hartford, Connecticut.
