Watch: Martin Scorsese Remembers Abbas Kiarostami

At New York’s School for the Visual Arts last Friday, Martin Scorsese spoke in remembrance of the late Abbas Kiarostami. He’d known him for some 14 years, and in this speech recalls both the last time they met — when they spoke about collaborating on a project next year — and the first, when they were both serving as Cinefondation honorary presidents at Cannes in 2002. Of Close-Up, he recalls how the film helped him “see the world again.”
