SHOULD THE WIND DROP : A CURRENT AFFAIRS FILM
Having received the Label of the Cannes Film Festival 2020 alongside that of ACID, SHOULD THE WIND DROP is a drama that evokes with intelligence and originality the geopolitical situation could not be more disturbing in the region of Nagorno-Karabakh where conflicts are raging, today more than ever. This mountainous enclave that has been disputed for decades between Armenia and Azerbaijan has just completed its 7th week of intense fighting. The defeated inhabitants of this separatist region are currently leaving the area after having burned their houses to prevent them from being left in enemy hands.
Nora Martirosyan's feature film allows us to understand the stakes of this conflict, which is still often too little known. A singular staging, and a fascinating subject. To see today and tomorrow here.
