Bad ma ra khahad bord / The Wind Will Carry Us (1999) 2 x DVD9, Blu-Ray
When an engineer and his colleagues from Tehran arrive in a remote village in Iranian Kurdistan, the locals assume they are archaeologists or telecom engineers. Even though they form an ambivalent relationship with the community, the visitors behavior and keen interest in the health of an ailing old woman appear strange, and their true motives are shrouded in mystery.

It soon becomes reasonably apparent that engineer and his crew (whose voices we hear, but whom we never see) want to film a local ceremony surrounding the death of an old woman who lives in the town. This old woman, however, stubbornly clings to life, leaving the protagonist to cool his heels in frustration...

Haunting and visually stunning, The Wind Will Carry Us is an absorbing abstract meditation on life and death and the divisions between tradition and modernity that stands among Kiarostami's best works.
