Close-Up

Sunday, July 28 - Tuesday, August 13, 2019

Showtimes

    This fiction-documentary hybrid uses a sensational real-life event — the arrest of a young man on charges that he fraudulently impersonated the well-known filmmaker Mohsen Makhmalbaf — as the basis for a stunning, multilayered investigation into movies, identity, artistic creation, and existence, in which the real people from the case play themselves. With its universal themes and fascinating narrative knots, CLOSE-UP — one of Kiarostami’s most radical, brilliant works — has resonated with viewers around the world.

    Screening as part of Abbas Kiarostami: A Retrospective, Fri Jul 26 through Thu Aug 15.
