About this product
- DescriptionThe New Iranian Cinema is considered by many to be the most fascinating cultural phemen produced within the Islamic Republic of Iran. Containing twelve first-hand interviews with the most rewned film-makers living and working in contemporary Iran, this book provides insights into film-making within a society often at odds with its rulers. Reflecting upon the 1979 revolution and its influence on their work, as well as the effect of their films on Iranian audiences, film-makers such as Abbas Kiarostami and Jafar Panahi highlight the key issues surrounding the reception of Iranian cinema in the West and also its role in the development of Iran's global image. Through these conversations Shiva Rahbaran reveals that the seeds of the New Iranian Cinema were sown long before the revolution, and that Iranian film-makers gave rise to a cinema which became a global phemen despite censorship, sanctions and political isolation.
