Amir Naderi's films made in Iran are far more significant than most of these titles listed above. Examples are "Water, wind, dust" (1989) and "The runner" (1985). Equally amazing is "Bitter dream" (2004) the debut film of Mohsen Amiryoussufi. These three films are far superior to most the films in the list above both in style and content.

A friend found them online for me and burnt me a disk.

Wow, that is a great list! I have seen maybe half of the complete list, but some of them I haven't been able to find. Where did you find all the Kiarostami shorts?
