EghtesadOnline: A group of Pakistanis including university professors and students paid tribute to renowned late Iranian filmmaker and director Abbas Kiarostami.
During the event in Karachi, Kiarostami’s award-winning iconic film 'The Wind Will Carry Us' was screened, reports IRNA.
After screening of the film, a participant, Madiha Aijaz said Kiarostami had been making films for the past 50 years.
She said he preferred poetry to novels and the marked feature of his films was that he liked to keep loose ends so that his audiences could interpret his stories themselves.
Another participant, Shehram Mokhtar, said he taught media studies and made sure that his students watched at least one Iranian film for aesthetic appreciation.
Internationally acclaimed film director Abbas Kiarostami, with legacy of 'The Taste of Cherry' and 'Where is Friend's Home', passed away in a Paris hospital on July 4 this year at the age of 76.
