SILVER LION (GRAND SPECIAL JURY PRIZE)
FIPRESCI PRIZE Venice Film Festival 1999
A TV crew from Tehran arrives in a remote Kurdish village to film an unusual funeral ceremony but are stymied when the old woman they expect to die clings to life. A fable-like story about professional and personal frustration, this droll drama is the most tantalisingly opaque and allusive of Kiarostami’s films, containing numerous references to poetry and several key figures (including the old woman) who are never seen. (Text by Godfrey Cheshire)
