Post-Revolution Iran Film Series:
“A Moment of Innocence” by Mohsen Makhmalbaf

Please join us for the second session in this film series – a screening of “A Moment of Innocence” by Mohsen Makhmalbaf, followed by a discussion (speaker TBA).

About “A Moment of Innocence”
A Moment of Innocence (1996) is a semi-autobiographical account of Makhmahlbaf’s experience as a teenager when, as a seventeen-year-old, he stabbed a policeman at a protest rally and was jailed. Two decades later, Makhmalbaf made the decision to track down the policeman whom he had injured in an attempt to make amends. A Moment of Innocence is a dramatization of that real event.  
The film was banned in Iran but has been received positively by international audiences.  In 2012, it was voted as one of the Greatest Films of All Time, by Sight and Sound’s critics’ poll.
