The Wind Will Carry Us

Still image from the film The Wind Will Carry Us
With a title taken from a verse by the great by the Iranian poet Forough Farrokhzad, The Wind Will Carry Us brilliantly embodies so many of the visual and thematic concerns that had dominated his works. A group of filmmakers from Tehran head to the Kurdish region to record a rarely performed funeral ceremony. However, when they arrive, their subject refuses to die. Yet, as critic J. Hoberman pointed out, the real subject of the film is “life, death, and everything in between.” Playful, provocative, and finally deeply moving, the film captures the extraordinary richness of everyday experience and the sense of living fully in the world. In Farsi language with English subtitles. (2K DCP presentation)

Due to a schedule change, director Abbas Kiarostami will not be present at this screening. He is now scheduled to be present for events on April 6 & 7.
