Winner, Artistic Acknowledgement, 2017
For his remarkable vision, the International Nomination Council commends Abbas Kiarostami with a special Artistic Acknowledgement, and the APSA Academy confers a posthumous Academy membership on him.
“Abbas Kiarostami’s final film 24 Frames is an exquisite reverie on scenes from nature. Through still, but precise frames, and aided by subtle staging or effects, he captures the haunting, haiku-like poetry of nature, its beauty, amorousness and brutality. The play with the double meaning of ‘frame’ reflects his profound mediation on the cinematic form.” – Prof. Hong-Joon Kim, APSA International Nominations Council Chair
