Time Lapse features the work of Cannes Film Festival award-winning directors Jafar Panahi and Abbas Kiarostami, Cannes Film festival award nominee Nasser Taghvai, award-winning documentary maker Kamran Shirdel, San Sebastian International Film Festival award-winning director Majid Barzegar, World Press Photo award-winning Cinematographer Seifollah Samadian and Cairo film festival award-winning director Hamid Jebeli.
Director Jafar Panahi, associated with the Iranian new wave movement, won the Caméra d’Or at the 1995 Cannes Film Festival for his film The White Balloon, the first major award won by an Iranian film at Cannes. Panahi made headlines recently as he was unable to attend the Cannes film festival after having been placed under house arrest and given a twenty-year ban on speaking to the media or directing any films. In spite of this the director has managed to secretly shoot several films, including Closed Curtain which was smuggled to Cannes in a USB drive hidden inside a cake.
The exhibition will be on display at CAMA London from 7th – 20th of September 2018.
