24 Frames

Image

For what would prove to be his final film, Iranian director Abbas Kiarostami gave himself a challenge: to create a dialogue between his work as a filmmaker and his work as a photographer, bridging the two art forms to which he had dedicated his life. Setting out to reconstruct the moments immediately before and after a photograph is taken, Kiarostami selected twenty-four still images—most of them stark landscapes inhabited only by foraging birds and other wildlife—and digitally animated each one into its own subtly evolving four-and-a-half-minute vignette, creating a series of poignant studies in movement, perception, and time. A sustained meditation on the process of image making, 24 Frames is a graceful and elegiac farewell from one of the giants of world cinema.

SPECIAL FEATURES

• 2K digital master, with 5.1 surround DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack on the Blu-ray
• New interview with director Abbas Kiarostami's son Ahmad Kiarostami, who helped finish the film after his father's death
• New conversation between Iranian film scholar Jamsheed Akrami and film critic Godfrey Cheshire
• New short documentary about the making of the film by Abbas Kiarostami collaborator Salma Monshizadeh
• Trailer
• PLUS: An essay by film critic Bilge Ebiri

He wasn't able to begin shooting the Chinese film he was planning, but 24 Frames, a series of 24 4 and a half minute shorts edited together, is scheduled to be released next year.
Kiarostami's very last film "24 Frames" premiered a few days ago at Cannes. Here's a review. Sounds as if it's very much in the vein of "Five".
