Abstract:

Feature film cum art installation in which Iranian director Abbas Kiarostami trains his camera on the faces of a cinema audience comprising 114 actresses - 113 Iranian theatre and cinema actresses and one French film star, Juliette Binoche - as they watch one of Kiarostami's own films, a theatrical rendering of the 12th-century Persian poem ' Khosrow and Shirin'. As the narrative unfolds on the screen that the women are watching (which remains invisible to the viewer throughout), it prompts various reactions in its audience: rapt attention, smiles, sidelong glances, headscarf-fiddling and, at several points, tears.
