The Digital Space 2006

This year’s Digital Space programme stretches its wings to take a broader view than ever of the continually evolving world of digital animation.

It's Winter

Rafi Pitts

Smoldering with a sexual energy unprecedented in Iranian cinema, a man drifts across the snowbound flatlands in search of work and whatever love and companionship he can find.

Less is More

Victor Kossakovsky, Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Abbas Kiarostami

Three great directors Victor Kossakovsky (Tishe!), Joe Apichatpong (Tropical Malady) and Iranian Abbas Kiarostami dig deep in short films about love, self-cognition and roads.

Men at Work

Kargaran Mashghoul-e Karand

Mani Haghighi

Masculinity and idiocy are put to the test in Mani Haghighi's wonderfully offbeat comic allegory about four middle-aged Iranian men on a ski trip who find a mysterious phallic symbol.


Jafar Panahi

Ardent teenage girl soccer fans masquerade as boys to crash the Iran-Bahrain game at Tehran stadium in this surprisingly funny, exuberant film from the director of The White Balloon and The Circle.
