Abbas Kiarostami Abbas Kiarostami

Looking at Tazieh


In Iran, Tazieh performances are occasions for huge popular gatherings. It was inevitable that Abbas Kiarostami, a filmmaker deeply connected to the land and culture of Iran, would one day be captivated by this unique form of tragedy in the Muslim world. In addition to the retrospective of his films at the Centre Pompidou, Kiarostami has created a staged video installation in which spectators can freely associate and interpret three different angles projected simultaneously onto three screens.
