#IranianHomeCinema 19# And Life Goes On by A. Kiarostami
And Life Goes On (Zendegi va digar hich)
directed by Abbas Kiarostami
Iran, Protected content , 91 Min, Farsi with subtitles (see links below)
Part fiction, part documentary, part road movie, And Life Goes On is the middle panel of Kiarostami's extraordinary Koker triptych (but, one hastens to add, stands on its own). Recreating a real-life journey that Kiarostami undertook in Protected content , the film takes place in the aftermath of an earthquake that killed over 50,000 people in northern Iran, as a man and his young son set out to learn the fate of the two young boys who starred in Kiarostami's Where is the Friend's Home? As they travel through the devastated landscape, they speak to several survivors of the earthquake, the interviews gradually coalescing into a moving portrait of human resilience. The extended final shot can only be called heart-stopping in its riskiness and humour.
Short documentary on the region where the Koker Trilogy was filmed: Protected content
