Summary
"In film studies, Iranian films are kept at a distance, as 'other, ' different, and exotic. In reponse, this book takes these films as philosophically relevant and innovative. Each chapter of this book is devoted to analyzing a single film, and each chapter focuses on one philosopher and one particular aesthetic question"--
