Plot / Synopsis:
In Moshen Makhmalbaf's "A Moment of Innocence" twenty years separates a key moment in time and the recreation of it.
In the 1970's director Mohsen Makhmalbaf was a militant against the Shah; during a disturbance he tried to take a policeman's gun producing a struggle that resulted in him stabbing that officer – a crime for which he then served five years in prison. While away, he educated himself and was released from prison to be an influential voice within Iranian cinema.
In an attempt to recapture this moment Makhmalbaf decides to a make a film within a film casting all the original participants (including the policeman) to play themselves as mentors to their younger selves, (i.e., actors) guiding and instructing them in the making of this movie. ~ IMDb
