about

Created at the intersection of religion and ever-shifting political, economic, and social environments, Iranian cinema produces some of the most critically lauded films in the world today. The first volume of the Directory of World Cinema: Iran turned the spotlight on the award-winning cinema of Iran, with particular attention to the major genres and movements, historical turning points, and prominent figures that have helped shape it. Considering a wide range of genres, including Film Farsi, new wave, war film, art house film, and women’s cinema, the book was greeted with enthusiasm by film studies scholars, students working on alternative or national cinema, and fans and aficionados of Iranian film.
Building on the momentum and influence of its predecessor, Directory of World Cinema: Iran 2 will be welcomed by all seeking an up-to-date and comprehensive guide to Iranian cinema.
