Whisper With The Wind (Sirta la gal ba)
Cert: TBC Year: 2009 Length: 88 mins Language: Kurdish
When a guerrilla commander asks a postman, Man Baldar, to record the cry of his newborn son, it's the beginning of a long journey. He travels between villages in Iraqi Kurdistan, trying to deliver messages between families separated by the raging war. The beauty of the landscape contrasts evocatively with the horrors (mostly off-screen) of battle. Aldi's poetic style won him Critics' Week prizes at Cannes, and Best Film at the International Eurarab film festival in Amal, Spain. '
Shahram Aldi has made a masterful film, deeply sensitive, moving but never facile.
