The Gene Siskel Film Center presents the twenty-first edition of our Festival of Films from Iran from October 2 through 31, marking the beginning of the third decade for this annual showcase for Iranian cinema.
This ever-changing national cinema provides a window on contemporary Persian culture and on the stories and issues perceived by Iran’s film artists. As more filmmakers work both inside and outside of Iran, we have increasingly found it valuable to add work by those representing the Iranian diaspora into the mix, and this year is no exception.
