Establishes reform as a cinematic category, the inheritor of revolutionary cinema in certain state-controlled cinemas. It surveys the contentious position of film in revolutionary discourse in Iran and connects "reform cinema" to the scholarship on Third Cinema and Post-Third Cinema aesthetics. This chapter also establishes Mohammad Khatami's professional career as an organizing scheme for the book and discusses the tenets most important to his political platform.

Keywords:   Reform Cinema, Iranian/Islamic Revolution, Mohammad Khatami, Civil Society, Dialogue Among Civilizations, Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance
