Theoretical Approach to Literary Adaptation in Iranian Cinema with a Focus on the New Wave Cinema and Child-centered Films

It investigates the role of contemporary Persian fiction at two key turning points of Iranian cinema: the rise of the New Wave cinema in the pre-revolutionary years of 1979 and the cycle of child-centered films through the post-revolutionary era.
