Parallel to the persian New Wave, with its neorealist and minimalist art cinema, there exists a so-called “popular art cinema” in Iran. Filmmakers who belong to this circle make films with a broader range of audience than the narrow spectrum of highly educated people who admire the New Wave, but believe that their movies are also artistically sound. Filmmakers such as Nasser Taghvaee and Ali Hatami are the best examples of this cinematic movement (some of these filmmakers also make new wave films e.g. Mum’s Guest by Darius Mehrjui). The Demon and the Bald Hassan, Adam and Eve, The Fisherman’s Story, City of Oranges, and Talisman are some of Hatami’s works.
