ABOUT THE FILM

A Snowy Day A Kurdish village conceals its presence under the cover of snow. People gradually emerge from their homes and tend to their everyday chores. Little by little, the camera reveals the appearance of the village as it moves deeper toward its center. It finally captures a little boy visiting his father's grave. His mother tells about the death of her husband. During the Iraq-Iran war, the area was covered by mines and the father died trying to retrieve one to sell it back to Iran for money.

遠巻きに映した村の人たちの場面がたくさん入っていて、言葉がごくわずかなのがよかった。カメラの存在感が薄い分、現実感が増している気がしました。
