Middle Eastern Studies Program Film Festival Presents: Where is the Friend’s House

“The film that established director Abbas Kiarostami'sreputation outside his native Iran, Where Is the Friend's Home? tells a simple story in such a spare fashion, many critics found its impact to be almost subliminal. As the film opens Ahmed, a grade school child, watches as his teacher berates a fellow student, Mohammed, for repeatedly failing to use his notebook for his homework, threatening expulsion on the next offense. When Ahmed returns home, he realizes he has accidentally taken Mohammed's notebook. Against his mother's orders, he sets out in search Mohammed's house, encountering false leads, dead ends, and distractions as he attempts to enlist adults in his search.”
