Close Up

In 1988 a person named “Hossein Sabzian” adulterated himself as “Mohsen Makhmalbaf”, the famous director of the Iranian cinema, and went to a family to make a so-called movie from them. A few days later that person got arrested and was sent to jail. Mohsen Makhmalbaf did not sign a complaint against him and Abbas Kiarostami made a movie about this subject by the name “Close-up”, in which Mohsen Makhmalbaf has presented his own role as an actor in a few parts of the movie.
