The latest film by internationally acclaimed director Abbas Kiarostami
(Close Up, And Life Goes On..., Through the Olive Trees, and Taste of Cherry,)
is a poetic tale of a filmmaker who travels to a remote village in Iran
to document local mourning rituals, but is overwhelmed by the life and
landscape around him.
The film was awarded the Silver Lion at the 1999 Venice Film Festival.
Following the screening director Abbas Kiarostami talks with Iranian film
scholar Jamsheed Akrami about his distinguished film career and recent
work in photography and poetry. A New Yorker Films release, The Wind Will
Carry Us opens on July 28th at the Lincoln Plaza Cinemas and Quad Cinema.
