Iranian Artists Forum to review Abbas Kiarostami’s “Traveler”

May 30, 2016

TEHRAN – The world-renowned Iranian filmmaker Abbas Kiarostami’s 1974 documentary “The Traveler” will be screened at the Iranian Artists Forum (IAF) in Tehran this evening.

“The Traveler” is about a grade-school-age boy, neglected by his parents, lies, cheats, and steals to accumulate enough money to afford a bus ride to a large city and a ticket to see his favorite soccer team play.

The IAF also plans to screen Abbas Ruzbahani’s documentary “The Travel of a Traveler”, which is about a Kiarostami’s fan in a remote area who begins a journey to visit him in Tehran.
