Reform Cinema in Iran

Blake Atwood

Columbia University Press

With the end of Khatami's eight-year presidency in mind, chapter 6 attends to the legacy of reform cinema by examining Massoud Bakhshi’s Tehran Has No More Pomegranates (2007), an experimental documentary, and the music video "Love of Speed" (2007), performed by the underground band Kiosk and released on YouTube. Bakhshi’s film and Kiosk’s video establish that reform cinema as an aesthetic movement functions outside of the temporal limits of its political antecedent. Although both works were released two years after Khatami’s presidency ended, and did not benefit directly from his cultural liberalism, they still participate in central reformist debates.

Keywords:   Documentary, Massoud Bakhshi, Kiosk, YouTube, Music Video, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
