Scent of Wind
(Derb)

by Hadi MOHAGHEGH

ScentofWind_WEB

An electrician is dispatched to repair a failed transformer near the isolated house of a disabled man and his bed-ridden son. One part is lacking and the technician sets off to find it. Based on this modest story, Hadi Mohaghegh, who plays the lead character, elaborates a miniature epic. Pitfalls and solutions, financial transactions and mutual aid, fill the duration and silences of what gradually becomes a meditation on goodness. Patiently filming everything that can be bought and sold, the filmmaker contrasts this by gently, unobtrusively and almost secretly magnifying things that have no price: an outstretched hand, a service that expects no reward, the time needed to take care of others, even strangers. There is no gesture of gratitude in Scent of Wind because the film wants us to re-learn that there is no need to wait for gratitude in order to give some. AR
