Opening Sunday, June 23rd, from 2:30PM - 4:30PM
Join community group Didaar for a screening and discussion celebrating the legacy of Abbas Kiarostami (1940-2016). A widely recognized filmmaker, photographer, and poet from Iran, the screening will feature Kiarostami’s work alongside selected short films from emerging filmmakers that honor him.
Hosting monthly discussion circles and events on art theory and practice, Didaar is a collective of Iranian artists, art historians, and community members based in Chicago. Holding discussions in Farsi, Iran’s native language, Didaar promotes community building by developing professional cooperation and communication among Iranian artists and art contributors.
This program is produced in partnership with Didaar and Gibran Villalobos, Partnerships and Engagement Program Liaison.
