Looking to his own art for inspiration, Abbas Kiarostami reflects on the power of landscape, which combines views of the Iranian auteur’s austere black-and-white photographs with poetic observations, engaging music and a politically provocative finale.

In this short experimental film, which Kiarostami made en passant as it were, it looks as if the master wanted to take a philosophical break, in order to catch his breath. He has put together the elements from his own culture that he admires: photography, poetry, classical music and film. Leitmotif is the road, in a literal and metaphorical sense.
