Vale Abbas Kiarostami

With the passing of Abbas Kiarostami on 4 July the world of cinema loses one of its masters. AK invented new forms of telling stories, a process he developed over years working away in Iran without any international attention. He and his new cinema arrived fully formed sometime in th 80s and he never ceased to expand his way of making films, always tossing us into his narratives through the unpredictable. The Guardian has a lengthy obituary and no doubt much more will be written as the scholars step up.
