WFC Iran: کلوزآپ ، نمای نزدیک‎

This is a totally fascinating film. It’s mostly a documentary, but the film-maker didn’t arrive until a bit into the proceedings, so he had the people involved re-enact what happened before he arrived.

And the story being told isn’t a super-duper mega-important one, but a really weird one.

It’s so bizarre structurally. I had to google it to determine that it wasn’t just all made up, because that’s the only thing that would have made it more mind blowing.

Close-Up. Abbas Kiarostami. 1990. Iran.

  • 8 parts gin
  • 7 parts Persian sweet lemon juice
  • 2 parts lemon juice
  • 2 parts Cherry Heering
  • 1 part rosewater
  • 1 part simple syrup

Shake with ice and strain into glass.

I’ve never had sweet lemons before. It’s a quite subtle flavour. It’s not even that citrusey. But nice.
