“Argo Fuck Yourself”

“Argo Fuck Yourself”

Iranian Cinema and the Curious Logics of Circulation

(p.84) 3 “Argo Fuck Yourself”
After the American Century

Brian T. Edwards

Columbia University Press

Cinema is arguably the arena where the historical tension between the US and Iran comes alive most vividly. Taking two recent Academy Award winning films set in Iran (A Separation, winner of best foreign film in 2012, and Argo, winner of Best Picture in 2013), and the vibrant response to both films in Iran, I discuss the debates around these films and then the fascination with CGI films (especially Shrek) in Iran.

Keywords:   Iran, Cinema, Argo, Asghar Farhadi, Abbas Kiarostami, Shrek
