Part of the Abbas Kiarostami: A Retrospective film series - The film that established director Abbas Kiarostami's reputation outside his native Iran, Where Is the Friend's Home? tells a simple story in such a spare fashion, many critics found its impact to be almost subliminal. Ahmed (Ahmed Ahmed Poor), a grade schooler, watches as his teacher (Kheda Barech Defai) berates a fellow student, Mohammed (Babek Ahmed Poor), for repeatedly failing to use his notebook for his homework , threatening expulsion on the next offense. When Ahmed returns home, he realizes he's accidentally taken Mohammed's notebook. Against his mother's orders, he sets out in search Mohammed's house, encountering false leads, dead ends, and distractions as he attempts to enlist adults in his search.


Featuring an introduction and post-film discussion with Iranian playwright Naghmeh Samini.
