Gregg,

What do mean by listing?
IMDb enables contributors to create unlimited lists, but, outside the automated top/bottom lists, I do not think the editorial department manages any specific list.

By listing I didn't see it in the movie/doc database listing film attributes & comments. A rarity unless I did not enter the title correctly.

Iranian Cinema Before and After the Revolution is an illuminating two-disc set that includes a trilogy of documentaries by film scholar Jamsheed Akrami, Friendly Persuasion (2000) gives an overarching portrait of Iranian cinema through interviews with three generations of Iranian directors - from New Wave visionaries (Abbas Kiarostami) to post-revolutionaries (Mohsen Makhmalbaf) and the third generation (Jafar Panahi). The Lost Cinema (2007) digs deeper into the Iranian New Wave, which blossomed as a counter-cinema in the 1970s and ended up banned due to the severely restrictive censorship codes imposed by the Islamic government after the 1979 Revolution. A Cinema of Discontent (2013) focuses on contemporary censorship codes by interviewing twelve filmmakers (from Asghar Farhadi to Dariush Mehrjui) about how they cope with or circumvent these restrictions. Taken together, along with the bonus short film A Walk with Kiarostami (2003), these films provide a deep and wide-ranging exploration of a courageous and fiercly creative national cinema.

The reason is it is a compilation of three separate documentaries. That is why it is not in the database.

Hi Gregg, 

As Ed has stated the title listed on Amazon 'Iranian Cinema Before & After Revolution 2019' is a compilation of documentaries which should be listed on IMDb separately and can be found under the directors filmography as below:

https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0015536/

If, in future, you come across a title that is not a compilation of existing titles and should be listed on IMDb, you can submit this as a new title. Thedetails of the format of titles, the eligibility rules and the option toactually create the new title are included in our guide below:
