‘The Cow’ Screening at Darb 17 18

Influenced by Italian neorealism, The Cow (1969) has the beauty and simplicity associated with the
great films of that movement. In a small village in Iran, Hassan
cherishes his cow more than anything in the world, for both emotional
and economical reasons. While he is away, the cow mysteriously dies, and
the villagers protectively try to convince Hassan the cow has wandered
off. Grief stricken, Hassan begins to believe he is his own beloved
bovine. Smuggled out of Iran,
where it was banned, the film has since become a landmark of Iranian
cinema. 10LE donations are accepted at the door.
