Mohsen Makhmalbaf – In Passing

Mohsen Makhmalbaf directing in Iran

In this short film Iranian filmmaker Mohsen Makhmalbaf passes by Porto Alegre (the capital and largest city in Brazilian state Rio Grande do Sul – the most southern state of Brazil) and discusses his thoughts on the art of film making with a young, inexperienced director from Porto Alegre and translator Flavio Rassekh. Confusingly the film is in English, Portugese and Persian with no subtitles, but there are certainly some poignant moments and phrases uttered in this peek into the mind of Makhmalbaf. Produced by Frontiers of Thought (FRONTEIRAS DO PENSAMENTO) in partnership with Okna Productions and Tokyo Movies
