Still Life (1974) (Tabiate bijan)
Zadour Bonyadi, Mohammed Kani, Hibibollah Safarian, Habib Safaryan, Zahra Yazdani / Fiction / Persian
An elderly railway signalman lives a life of unvarying routine with his wife, a carpet weaver.
One day, some officials from the company arrive. They notice the old man and ask about his age. Soon after that, a letter comes informing him that he is being retired... A film of extraordinary subtlety and strength and the masterpiece of one of the world's greatest filmmakers. [PG]
#1/ Thursday 29 May, 2014 / 10:13 GMTIs this the Pasolini/Marsan film? Just with the wrong text here? Also, I can't find "Welcome to New York" in the programme or on the website...
#2/ Saturday 31 May, 2014 / 19:40 GMTFrom printed programme this is screening only on 20th and Pasolini's is screeing on 25th and 28th.
Still showing online as both screening on the same dates, at the same times and on the same screens so might cause a bit of confusion for online ticket buyers.
#3 / Wednesday 4 June, 2014 / 12:31 GMTHi Charles, every year we seem to programme two films with the same name! This Still Life is part of our Iranian retrospective; the Pasolini Still Life you are looking for can be found here - http://www.edfilmfest.org.uk/films/2014/still-life
