As part of Rare Giants’ Cities of Seven Hills season, we welcome Abbas Kiarostami’s Ten (2002). Iranian filmmaker Abbas Kiarostami achieved acclaim on the 1990s film festival scene, but confounded many critics with this ultra-minimalist drama about a woman (Mania Akbari) driving around Tehran, picking up various passengers as she goes. With ten conversational episodes from a small digital camera fixed to the dashboard, a complex picture of the oppression of women in modern Iran emerges from this Palme d’Or nominated docufiction.
Rare Giants is a not-for-profit organisation screening restored films by overlooked filmmakers and underrepresented voices from around the world. This project is supported by Film Hub North, proud to be part of the BFI Film Audience Network.
