Rediscovering Mohammad Ali Talebi


The Cinema of Childhood, a season of 17 films with/about children and childhood from all over the world, curated by Mark Cousins, hit the UK screens in April. I've been commissioned to write about three films in the season by Iranian filmmaker Mohammad Ali Talebi. Most of these films see the light of the UK screens for the first time, especially Talebi's. I'm also glad to announce Talebi is coming to the UK to attend some of the events, including a Q&A at the BFI Southbank with Mark Cousins.

The three short essays with links to the website of the season (which is also my job) are:



Below is the beautiful trailer of the season




The teaser of all the films in the season can be viewed both on the website or alternatively here on this Vimeo channel.

Lastly, I'll be touring with Talebi in the UK and these are some of the cities we're visiting. Talebi participates in Q&As after each screening:

April 11, London, BFI Southbank
April 17, Bristol, Watershed
