Director: Abbas Kiarostami
Iran, 2016, 16’, black & white
No dialogue

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.
