Ebrahim GolestanZakaria Hashemi, Tajolmolouk Ahmadi, Akbar Meshkin, Pari Saberi

Iran / 1964 / Farsi / 130 minutes / DCP

Decades before Kiarostami, Panahi or Makhmalbaf, Ebrahim Golestan created a new Iranian cinema channeling Orson Welles and Persian poetry, in the shadow of the 1953 coup that strengthened Reza Pahlavi as Shah (and the arrest of Ayatollah Kohmeini). Stark and inventive cinematography, exquisite sound and a powerfully improvised story of a taxi driver who finds a baby in his cab and his struggle to keep the child offer a rare glimpse into the evolution of world cinema heritage.
