The final film from Abbas Kiarostami is a wordless series of sketches elaborating on his lifelong fascination with photography.
''24 Frames'' is an experimental project that Abbas Kiarostami made during the last three years of his life and was completed posthumously. It is a collection of 24 frames consisting of fixed images of pictures and photographs. Most of them are in black and white, and mainly depicts animals and nature. Kiarostami becomes ´image curator´ in this film, which is accepted as a response to the paintings and photographs that inspired him. We could see his affection for wind, waves, crows, and snow, as shown in Pieter Bruegel´s ´The hunters in the snow´(1565). On the other hand, humans are absent. He maintains an experimental attitude at every moment, and the 24 frames, displaced like the pictures in the gallery without any information, look like riddles. We can have our own frame through this film, as it talks to us with a hypnotic image. [JANG Byungwon]
