In his youth, Iranian auteur Mohsen Makhmalbaf was imprisoned for stabbing policeman Mirhadi Tayebi during a political protest. Decades later, following his release from prison, Makhmalbaf was stunned to meet Tayebi again--this time at an audition for one of his films. Makhmalbaf utilizes this strange twist of events for this wry, metafilmic masterpiece, in which he and Tayebi act as players in a reconstruction of the event that changed the course of their lives. "By thoroughly confusing fiction and documentary, personal history and personal fantasy, A Moment of Innocence becomes a heady exploration of memory, personal associations, and multiple realities" (Stephen Holden, The New York Times). In Farsi with English subtitles. Mohsen Makhmalbaf---Iran---1996---78 mins.
