    Watch
    Abbas Kiarostami introduced the world to Mania Akbari in 2002, when he placed his video camera on her dashboard and filmed her talking alternately to her son, friends and strangers while driving them through the streets of Tehran. Ten of those conversations became Ten, Kiarostami’s compelling portrait of a 27-year-old divorcée and mother struggling to maintain her integrity under the cultural rigors of Iran’s fundamentalist regime. Four years later, encouraged by Kiarostami, Akbari again took the wheel, literally and metaphorically, in her own conversation- and petrol-fueled sequel. There is a marked difference, however. Mania had since been diagnosed with breast cancer, and her illness drives the conversations this time around. Akbari was still in treatment while shooting the film, lending it an immediacy and intimacy at once disturbing and heartbreaking. Throughout, Akbari discusses her illness with amazing candor, as we watch her fight her grief and fear with the same strength of will and lack of self-pity she showed in Ten. This exceptional film reveals Akbari’s command behind the camera as well, sharply illuminating a woman’s complicated, often contradictory interior battles through the otherwise diffuse and meandering conversations of everyday life.

    The Mystery of the Second Painting WATCH TRAILER
    Presented to King Louis XIV as a work by Michelangelo, Daniele Da Volterra’s masterful David Killing Goliath is a double-sided painting representing the same scene from differing perspectives. This film carefully examines the nurturing relationship between the master artist and his protégé. (Muriel Edelstein, France 2007, 28 min) This film won a Golden Gate Award for television documentary short.
