Directed by: Abbas Kiarostami
For what would prove to be his final film, Iranian director Abbas Kiarostami gave himself a challenge: to create a dialogue between his work as a filmmaker and his work as a photographer, bridging the two art forms to which he has dedicated his life. Setting out to reconstruct the moments immediately before and after a photograph is taken, Kiarostami selected twenty-four still images – most of them stark landscapes inhabited only foraging birds and other wildlife – and digitally animated them into subtly evolving four-and-a-half-minute vignettes, creating a series of poignant studies in movement, perception, and time. A sustained meditation on the process of image making, 24 FRAMES is a graceful and elegiac farewell from one of the giants of world cinema.
“The chief pleasure of 24 Frames is how it attunes you to appreciate any movement, whether it’s snow falling, waves crashing, or birds pecking the earth.” – Chicago Reader
