Kiarostami’s Film Influences His Gravestone

The tombstone of the late Iranian film director and producer, screenwriter and photographer Abbas Kiarostami has been inspired from his notable film ‘Where is the Friend’s Home?’
The design on the gravestone has been taken from a poster illustrated by Iranian graphic designer Morteza Momayez (1935-2005) who had in turn been inspired by a scene in Kiarostami’s film.
The poster symbolically depicts a scene from the film where the protagonist makes his way through a zigzag path to reach a village beyond the hill.
Kiarostami (1940-2016) passed away on July 4. His gravestone will soon be installed at his resting place in Lavasan, Tehran Province, ILNA reported
