    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 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.

     

    This event is part of Lightbox Film Center’s new series, Through the Eyes of Kiarostami.
