Abbas Kiarostami – Bozorgdasht-e mo’Allem AKA Tribute to the Teachers (1977)

An assignment from the Ministry of Education, this documentary from the last years of the Pahlavi dynasty includes interviews with government officials who predictably praise teaching as a sacred, noble, and honorable profession. The teachers who are also interviewed are less starry-eyed: one speaks of ungrateful students and the job’s poor pay. The contrasting views reflect Kiarostami’s interest in education while registering some of his reservations about how it is practiced.
