Abstract: 

The aim of this article is to recognize the existing “religious experience” discourses in Iran and to explain the way they are represented in the Iranian cinema after the Islamic Revolution. Using a documentary method, the concept of “religious experience” is studied from the point of view of each discourse, and then, the way these discourses are represented in Iranian cinema is demonstrated using the theory of representation and the method of discourse analysis.
In relation to “religious experience”, three discourses of “intellectualism”, “religious intellectualism” and “Islamic tradition” are recognized and in order to illuminate the theoretical arguments, three movies are selected and analyzed, each representing the religious experience in the above mentioned discourses considering the discursive elements and semi discursive fields. The movies include “Booye Kafoor, Atre Yas”, “Marmoolak”, and “Tavvallode Yek Parvaneh”, for discourses of intellectualism, religious intellectualism and Islamic tradition respectively.
