CASE NO. 1, CASE NO. 2
1979 • 48 minutes • Color • 1.85:1 aspect ratio

This extraordinary film was made in the spring of 1979, not long after the shah’s overthrow. Kiarostami stages two versions of a classroom discipline situation — in one, a student tells on a troublemaker; in the other, seven students refuse to rat — and then has several adult authorities comment on the outcomes. The fascinating responses evoke conflicts between order and resistance.

 

A WEDDING SUIT
1976 • 60 minutes • Color • 1.66:1 aspect ratio

In a trilevel shopping arcade, a teenage boy who works for a tailor is besieged by two other boys who want to borrow a new suit to wear on a social outing before it’s turned over to its owner. One of the most accomplished and intricately plotted of Kiarostami’s Kanoon films, this sharply observed drama contains suspense, satire, an undercurrent of violence, and even a magic show.
