The Boston Festival of Films from Iran

January 16–26, 2020

Iran is renowned for producing some of the most spectacular and groundbreaking films in the world. Each year, film curators from the MFA; the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Asian Art; and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, work together to curate this compelling festival offering a range of perspectives by contemporary Iranian filmmakers. This year’s lineup includes Filmfarsi, a found-footage documentary unearthing a world of pre-revolutionary Iranian cinema, and When The Moon Was Full, Narges Abyar’s new drama blending political thriller and horror.
