The Wind Will Carry Us

A few people arrive from Tehran for a short stay at Siah Dareh, a village in Iranian Kurdistan. The locals do not know why they are there. The strangers wander around the former cemetery and let the villagers think that they are looking for treasure. They end up leaving without really giving the impression that they have found what they were looking for. Director Kiarostami's films characteristically blur the line between fiction and documentary. He likes to work with non-professional actors in natural settings and he is regarded as one of the greatest directors of contemporary world cinema.
