Published: Fiction Criticizing Reality


The first chapter of my thesis on Abbas Kiarostami is now published. The chapter looks at the films Close-Up, And Life Goes On and Through the Olive Trees and examines how the films blend documentary and fiction filmmaking in order to critique the idea of film capturing reality.

You can read it over at CINEJ Cinema Journal

Feel free to let me know what you think in the comments, through email, on twitter, Facebook or anywhere else you follow me.

I am looking at getting the other chapters published as articles but currently none of them are under review at a journal, so it might be a while before I resubmit those articles.
