Through Olive Trees is the third part of Abbas Kiarostami’s Koker trilogy, which was filmed in Koker, in the Rostam Abad region of Gilan province in Iran. What is significant in this film is its deceptively simple plot that would eventually lead the viewer to thought-provoking themetics. In this meta-cinematic rural movie, Kiarostami affirmed his aptitude in side-stepping political religiosity, which was promoted in the state funded films of the 1980s and 1990s, to embrace an authentic humanism that became a Kiarostami signature in his ‘cinema stylo’ aesthetics.
