A Moment of Innocence

Mohsen Makhmalbaf | Iran | 1996 | Unclassified (15+)


Wed 19 Jun 2024

See below for additional related events

At the age of 17 in pre-revolutionary Iran Makhmalbaf was imprisoned for stabbing a policeman. Twenty years later he sets out to restage the events with the collaboration of his original antagonist. A typically playful mixture of realism and fabulation that dexterously examines the shifting perspectives and histories that surround such incidents. A subtle exploration of the intimate intertwining of cinema and everyday life in contemporary Iran and one of the key works of New Iranian Cinema.
