Chess of The Wind – Iranian Movie Screening at UW Cinematheque

December 3, 2021 @ 7:00 pm

A major rediscovery, this beautifully restored landmark of pre-revolution Iranian cinema was banned after a single screening and had long been considered lost.  In an opulent, candlelit mansion, a wealthy family schemes against one another in pursuit of the remains of their inheritance. A haunting depiction of crumbling aristocracy much more redolent of Visconti than Kiarostami, Chess of the Wind is an essential addition to the canon of Iranian art cinema (MK). Co-presented with the support of UW Madison’s Middle East Studies Program.
