Through the Olive Trees (1994)

Synopsis - The third and final part of Abbas Kiarostami’s Koker Trilogy, Through the Olive Trees is about a film crew from Tehran shooting in an earthquake-ravaged village using the local inhabitants as actors. But life goes on, bringing the show to a stop. It seems Hossein, the actor chosen to portray a young bridegroom, is smitten with his onscreen bride. Earthquake or no, through graveyard and forest glade, he has asked her to be his wife but she ignores him. The film uses devices that produce repetition and interruptions to create a sense of dissonance that prevent a dominant mood from developing, yet creating a consciousness that is unique to cinema.
