New Restorations: The Wind Will Carry Us

Tue, Mar 3 / 9 pm
Wed, Mar 4 / 7 pm
Tue, Mar 10 / 7 pm
Sun, Mar 15 / 7:30 pm
Directed by Abbas Kiarostami
1999, Iran / France, 118 min, New 4K Restoration
Persian & Kurdish with English subtitles

A TV crew from Tehran arrives in a remote Kurdish village to film an unusual funeral ceremony but are stymied when the old woman they expect to die clings to life. A fable-like story about professional and personal frustration, this droll drama is the most tantalizingly opaque and allusive of Kiarostami’s films, containing numerous references to poetry and several key figures (including the old woman), who are never seen.

Looking Backwards // Moving Forwards is our ongoing series shining a light on the important work being done to preserve and promote the history of film via new digital restorations. Generously Sponsored by IATSE 856. 

Reviews

A celebration of the human spirit nothing short of sublime.
-Sean Axmaker, Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Its effects seem more like those of a poem or a piece of music than a movie. Requires the reverent darkness and communal solitude of a theater.
- Dana Stevens, The New York Times
