The art of cinema in Iran, just as in other countries, has been affected by political, social and cultural changes and thus has been shaped accordingly. Because of its nature, cinema witnessing the conditions of its time conveys the social, political, economic and cultural structure of Iran to large masses. Cinema films, in this context, are the productions that can be used as a reference to understand the social and political structure of a certain period and to make inferences about that period. In this study, the aim is to examine the similarities and differences in the social and political structure of the Iranian society by taking into account the films that are produced in two different periods, before and after Islamic Revolution in 1979, which is a turning point in terms of cultural production as well as social life of Iran. In accordance with this purpose, in this study, Sohrab Şehide Sales, who is one of the important representatives of Iranian cinema’, his film “Lifeless Nature” (1975) and Mecid Mecidi’s “Song of Sparrows” (2008) has been examined. These two directors, whose productions took place in different periods, focused on such issues as the social realities of their times, the traditional family structure of Iran, its social life, women's problems, political problems, poverty and unemployment. In this respect, both "Lifeless Nature" and "The Song of Sparrows" are the films that allow us the analysis of the social, political and economic structure of the period through the topics they dealt with. Within the scope of the study, films will be compared in terms of similarities and differences between them and also an evaluation.
