Abbas Kiarostami Marathon Part III of VI
“I think if people died and then came back to life, they’d appreciate life more.”
It should be no breaking news that Abbas Kiarostami happens to be squarely genuine in his cinematic capturing of the natural catastrophe that grievously struck Iran in 1990. A down-to-earth, visceral glimpse at the director’s journey into the aftermath, And Life Goes On is a conversational departure into the calculated essence of living yet the indefinable nature of destruction.
By the way, a deserved *chef’s kiss* to all the Kiarostami landscape shots in this… again.
“And Life Goes On” is now available to stream on The Criterion Channel.
