Dates with showtimes for AND LIFE GOES ON
  • Wed, Mar 13

Director: Abbas Kiarostami Run Time: 95 min. Release Year: 1992 Language: Persian (Farsi)

Starring: Buba Bayour, Farhad Kheradmand, Ferhendeh Feydi, Hocine Rifahi, Hossein Rezai

In the aftermath of a 1990 earthquake that left 30,000 dead, Kiarostami returned to the village of Koker where his camera surveys not only the devastation but the teeming life that continues in its wake. Blending fiction and reality into a playful, poignant road movie, And Life Goes On follows a film director (played by an actor standing in for Kiarostami) who, along with his son, makes the difficult trek to the region in hopes of finding out if the young star of his movie Where is the Friend’s House? is among the survivors. There he discovers a resilient community pressing on in the face of tragedy as he’s helped along on his journey by the generosity of those he meets. Finding beauty in the bleakest of circumstances, Kiarostami crafts a quietly majestic ode to the best of the human spirit.
