HYBRID Every second of a film consists of 24 frames. This is the theme of Abbas Kiarostami's last film which is made up of famous paintings and photographs taken by Kiarostami himself over the last years of his life. Every picture is a basis for the question: what happened before or after the picture was created? In meditative, four-minute films, the Iranian director breathes life into the stills and for one last time brings to the screen the essence and fascination of cinema. 24 Frames was completed by Kiarostami's son Ahmad after his death in July 2016.
