The Celebration of Iranian Cinema is the current event of the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) Film & Television Archive which explores the diverse currents of Iran cinema by highlighting its recent and classic films.
Having launched on April 30, the program will continue until May 22, screening a total of 12 Iranian productions including feature and documentary movies, Mehr News Agency reported.
The program also includes filmmakers, screenwriters and actors who will appear in person and discuss their works which stimulates opportunities for cultural exchange and understanding through art.
So far, acclaimed movies ‘Two’, ‘Time to Love’, ‘The Man Who Became a Horse’, ‘The Sale’, ‘Iranian Ninja’, ‘Nahid’ and ‘Dolls Don’t Know’ have been shown at the university Billy Wilder Theater.
In the coming weeks, other globally praised films ‘Wednesday, May 9’, ‘Risk of Acid Rain’, ‘Avalanche’, ‘Hadji Sha’ and ‘The Cow’ will also be shown.
Before screening the classic film ‘The Cow’ on May 13, Hamid Naficy, author and movie expert will sign copies of his book ‘A Social History of Iranian Cinema’ in a session talking about the same issue.
On May 20, Ali Zamani Esmati, director, screenwriter and producer of ‘Hadji Sha’ and actress Roya Teimoorian will attend the panel to talk about the film. On the following day, Behtash Sanaeeha, director and co-screenwriter of ‘Risk of Acid Rain’ will watch the film with the audience and discuss his work afterwards.
For more than two decades, UCLA Film & Television Archive has showcased films from Iran for southern California audiences. The Archive has tracked Iran’s national cinema, its evolving modes of storytelling and the perspectives and achievements of its leading talents.
