A group of men from the city traverse the rural Iranian countryside, looking for the village of Siah Dareh, following directions such as "turn left at the big tree on top of the hill," seemingly lost. The driver, respectfully called "Engineer" by the villagers, is in this remote location to record a funeral ritual that will follow the death of a woman reputed to be more than 100 years old. As he waits and she rallies, he becomes a figure of some amusement in the valley--whenever his cell phone beeps, he charges to higher ground in his Land Rover in order to get proper reception. And as he waits to complete his task, he is transformed from a nosy outsider into a reverent observer, seeing all the transient beauty and eternal wonder of the human experience in one poor, small, rural village

After being turned away by the owner of a posh jewelry story, and then treated with coldness and condescension on a return visit, Hussein decides that the humiliation is not to be borne.

Of interest to enthusiasts of cinema and literature alike, Walking with the Wind - the second volume in Harvard Film Archives series "Voices and Visions in Film"--Sheds light on a contemporary master who transforms simple fragments of reality into evocative narrative landscapes."--Jacket

"Ostensibly an adaptation of a 12th century Persian poem about a young princess courted by two men, a nobleman and an artist, Kiarostami never shows us the film in question. Instead, we are invited to reconstruct the narrative from dialogue and sound, as well as the emotions that flash across the faces of a rapt, mostly female audience."--Container
