In partnership with the Maryland Film Festival, the Walters presents Abbas Kiarostami’s classic 1997 film about the diverse, complex, and even contradictory views Iranian citizens hold about life, culture, and religion. As the protagonist, Mr. Badii, drives around Tehran, he meets an eclectic group of citizens who teach him about the life lessons that are right in front of his eyes. Following the screening, the audience is invited to stay for a discussion of Iranian film and culture, past and present, with film critic and filmmaker Godfrey Cheshire. This program is held in conjunction with the upcoming special exhibition Pearls on a String: Artists, Patrons, and Poets at the Great Islamic Courts.
