Iranian auteur Abbas Kiarostami offers the viewer a master class as he drives along the hillsides he made famous in Taste of Cherry. Broken into 10 segments—each section illuminating an aspect of his unique method—Kiarostami makes the lyricism of his cinematic vision accessible to the willing student. Learn why so many of his recent films take place inside the confines of automobiles and why he has chosen to give up film in favor of video. This breathtaking document should not be missed by anyone who loves the heady magic of moviemaking.  PB
