The feature-length documentary, directed by Mahmoudreza Sani and produced by Behrouz Neshan, is the latest narrative on the late filmmaker.
In this film, Kiarostami is portrayed as a child who is exploring new games. As Kiarostami says, cinema for him is like a game that allows him to go back to his childhood.
The piece attempts to depict the late filmmaker’s worldview and his perspective on life and cinema.
IntimaLente aims to promote documentary cinema with particular attention to anthropological topics and methodologies, according to the event’s organizers.
‘Kiarostami and His Missing Cane’ had previously taken part at Eurasia International Monthly Film Festival in Russia, and won the best feature-length documentary award at the fourth Salto Independent Film Festival in Uruguay.
