He is also a major figure in the arts world, and has had numerous gallery exhibitions of his photography, short films and poetry. Read More >

Synopsis

Abbas Kiarostami takes his camera to south of Italy and shows us a beautiful and playful video of alleys and stairs there.

Premiering recently at Venice, shot in Black and white in the south of Italy, Abbas Kiarostami’s last short film masks a carefully constructed narrative that highlights the deceptive nature of his filmmaking and his deft manipulation of time and space.
