The Report

January 11 at 2:00 p.m.
West Building Lecture Hall

Kiarostami’s overlooked first feature The Report tracks a week in the life of a young government worker — a tax collector named Mohammad Firouzkouhi. During this short time span, he faces eviction, is accused of asking for bribes, and has a life-altering quarrel with his wife. Ever disciplined, Kiarostami allows these events to play out with a clarity that probes the human condition. The film’s location shooting paints a subdued portrait of prerevolutionary Tehran. (1977, subtitles, 109 minutes)
