THREE QUESTIONS FOR THE DIRECTOR: ABBAS KIAROSTAMI


Your unique, distinct film style was the example for many young filmmakers. How do you see today’s cinematography? Is there room in it for art cinema? 

    • I have my answer based on workshops in Iran and other parts of the world. I worked with different students and our cinema is based on independent cinema. They work with a digital camera. They use it as a pen. With their creative mind, they can make a lot of films without any investors. In the future, we will have a cinema that cannot compare to Hollywood. We will have cinema in the next century that is more creative. In my opinion, video art is not totally different from cinema. It is close to basic cinema 1st century when it was invented. We can have cinema in an artistic way. With our creativity, video is a way to go to artistic cinema. I hope that artistic cinema in the world will be expanded in the future.
 

    Your latest movie, Certified Copy, was filmed outside of Iran and it starred the famous Juliette Binoche. Did this new experience something new to your film style and work? 

    • I hope that it hasn’t, that my style is not different from the past. I think my style is the same, but my material is the different. Of course when you have an investor in cinema, the shape of work will change and you should work differently.
 

    What sets this festival apart from others that you have been at? What is unique about it? 

    • There is a great director behind this festival. We are in a cinematic location where a film was created. We are in the cinema. What is unique here is that there is no difference between day and night and it is casual. I wasn’t here long enough to feel a lot of differences. But of course there is a difference when a film director is the director of it. The most important difference is that everyone who is attending is coming purely for the cinema.
