Director: Abbas Kiarostami
Iran, 2016, 16’, black & white
A kid leaves a football at a doorstep which slowly starts to roll down the stairs onto the street; keeps falling and falling... With this short film shot in Southern Italy, master director Abbas Kiarostami leaves behind a unique, 16-minute visual poem about the inescapable circle of life, which he completed shortly before passing away last year. The journey of the ball as it bounces with child-like exuberance, caught in the daily rhythm of life, and manages to find a place of its own through the act of falling is a perfectly simple, meditative, and subtle commentary.
This film will be shown before the screening of 76 Minutes, Seifollah Samadian’s film on Kiarostami, in memoriam Kirostami.
Ali Sami is born in Rusçuk in 1866, and moves to İstanbul. Because his family is registered in the Beylerbeyi quarter of Üsküdar, Ali Sami is also called Üsküdarlı Ali Sami. He graduates from the Mühendishane-i Berri-i Hümayun in 1866 and becomes a teacher of painting and photography at the school.
