The Golestan Film Workshop, founded by Ebrahim Golestan, was a collective of leftist Iranian artists that mostly produced commissioned films for the National Iranian Oil Company and other institutions in the 1950s and 60s. This series, programmed to complement the exhibition Modernisms: Iranian, Turkish, and Indian Highlights from NYU’s Abby Weed Grey Collection, includes several recent restorations of these signature works of Iranian modernist cinema.
