  • Orderly or Disorderly (Be tartib ya bedoun-e tartib)

    Directed by Abbas Kiarostami.
    Iran, 1981, DCP, color, 15 min.
    Persian with English subtitles.

Ostensibly an educational film for children, this short seems to condense everything that is wonderful about Kiarostami’s cinema into one comical, philosophical, slightly non-fictional, lightly political—and certainly Tati-esque—offering. In his early graphic, trance-inducing style, he proceeds to make comparisons between each of the title’s antonyms under different circumstances—until those circumstances fall beyond the control of either the filmmaker or the police officer at hand.
