The final film by the great, late Iranian filmmaker Abbas Kiarostami, 24 Frames is an exquisite dialogue between his work as a filmmaker and fine art photographer.

What happens in the moments before and after a photograph is taken? 24 Frames answers this question and unites the two artistic languages Kiarostami dedicated his life to. Melancholic and joyous, serious and mischievous, it’s a refined meditation on the passage of time and on the fragility of existence – themes central to the cinema of this revered Iranian director. A favourite of SFF audiences, Kiarostami’s previous films include Certified Copy, The Wind Will Carry Us Away (SFF 1999), Palme d’Or winner Taste of Cherry (SFF 1998) and Close Up. 24 Frames premiered as a special event at the Cannes Film Festival 2017.

Images become cinema in 24 Frames… segments that turn Kiarostami’s own photographs, many in starkly beautiful black and white, into animations of about four and a half minutes. – Manohla Dargis, The New York Times

The final segment… is a stunning and majestic Kiarostami statement about love, cinema, death, technology, censorship, and the 21st century. It is moving, it is cosmic, it is sublime. – Owen Gleiberman, Variety
