Five Dedicated to Ozu
Filmfest 2010

A poetic essay in five acts. "Many of my films have been made with and about children. I see my films as being contributions towards a solving of misunderstandings between people. For man's problem today is one of communication, of understanding. We talk with each other, but we don't really understand one another. I make films to help people to a better mutual understanding. The high estimation of the film industry in Iran in the eyes of the cinema audience gives the film industry in our country a lot of impetus.Soon film will be Iranian industry's most well-known export article after carpets." Abbas Kiarostami in a 1990 interview
