Behind the lens of renowned Iranian cinematographers

Time Lapse is an exhibition of striking photographs by prestigious Iranian film directors. After enormous success in both London and Tehran, the exhibition will travel to the USA in November, to be shown at The Container Yard in Downtown Los Angeles.

Time Lapse features the work of Cannes Film Festival award-winning directors Jafar Panahi and Abbas Kiarostami, Cannes Film festival award nominee Nasser Taghvai, award-winning documentary maker Kamran Shirdel, San Sebastian International Film Festival award-winning director Majid Barzegar, World Press Photo award-winning Cinematographer Seifollah Samadian and celebrated actor and Cairo film festival award-winning director Hamid Jebeli. The exhibition celebrates Iranian cinema and its international reach, and simultaneously demonstrates the talent of the directors, stretching beyond dynamic filmmaking to the creation of fine art.

CAMA Gallery aims to provide a politically neutral platform on which to showcase the wealth of artistic talent in Iran. CAMA Gallery has three galleries in Iran, a gallery in London, and will soon open a permanent space in Los Angeles.

The exhibition opens with a private view on November 2 from 8pm and runs through November 14, 2018.

JIM CHAPMAN x CANNES FILM FESTIVAL

Ahead of the 71st annual Cannes Film Festival, Jim Chapman, Writer and Content Creator, celebrates the upcoming A-list event with exclusive insight into the most memorable moments from previous years, and what to expect from this year’s festival.

 

Jim gives us the lowdown on Cannes, one of the most prestigious film festivals in the world.  He recalls back in 2011, when Kanye West performed an exclusive after party set and invited Academy Award winner Jamie Foxx onstage for an impromptu performance of his hit single, ‘Gold Digger’.

 

Jim also recounts his untold insight from the 2015 festival when Benicio Del Toro, Josh Brolin and director Denis Villeneuve all wore high heels to the premiere of Sicario, as a demonstration against an antiquated dress code requiring women to wear heels to all evening gala premieres. Famously,  Julia Roberts appeared barefoot on the red carpet as an act of fashion rebellion against the same rule too.

 

As Cannes is one of the most anticipated red carpet events of the awards calendar,  Jim is expecting to see Hollywood star, Cate Blanchett pull out all the stops, as this year,  as she has been named President of the Jury, alongside other actresses including Kristen Stewart and Léa Seydoux to name but a few.

 

Jim also discusses the stir caused by organizers who have banned Netflix productions being considered for the Palme D’Or and Netflix’s decision to withdraw their title from the festival.
