Persian with English subtitles

A school window is broken, and kids can’t concentrate because the rain is getting in. The culprit isn’t allowed back into class until he mends it. He carries a large pane of glass across the countryside in a gale. The wind blows; but will he crack? In the hands of writer Abbas Kiarostami and director Mohammad-Ali Talebi, this simplest of stories becomes an epic quest, poetic and breathtakingly beautiful. It has big-hearted humanism, but Hitchcockian tension too. An edge-of-seat masterpiece. Unmissable. 


The screening on Tuesday 15 April will be followed by a Q&A with director Mohammad-Ali Talebi, hosted by Mark Cousins.
