Iranian documentary ‘Kiarostami and His Missing Cane’ has been selected to vie at the 2019 Salto Independent Film Festival in Uruguay.
Directed by Mahmoud-Reza Sani and produced by Behrouz Neshan, the piece aims to depict late Abbas Kiarostami’s worldview and his perspective on life and cinema.
Kiarostami, in this film, is portrayed as a child who is exploring new games. As Kiarostami says, cinema for him is like a game that allows him to go back to his childhood.
At the Salto festival films are screened for more than six thousand people.
The fourth edition of the fest is slated for October 14-18, 2019.
