(Khaneh-je doost kojast?, Abbas Kiarostami, Iran 1987, 87 min., Farsi w/subtitles)
A Trilogy of Trilogies. After nearly two decades making pedagogical films for and about children, Kiarostami delivered a feature-length summation: a simple, lyrical tale of an 8-year-old boy who must journey to a neighboring village to return the notebook of a classmate. From this spare premise, Kiarostami crafts a beguiling exploration of Iranian geography.
