#62: Homework
Directed by: Abbas Kiarostami
1989 / 86 mins
Persian with English Subtitles

"Homework" is a documentary Abbas Kiarostami directed in 1989 after realizing he was having difficulties assisting his son with his homework. Kiarostami interviewed young male students at a local school to find out what kind of problems kids faced completing their homework, which in Iran requires a great deal of parental assistance (or did at the time).
