People of the Wind

An Academy Award® and Golden Globe nominee for Best Documentary, People of the Wind's astonishing widescreen photography and brilliantly recorded soundtrack take the viewer out onto the dangerous precipices of the Zardeh Kuh mountain and into the icy waters of the Cholbar river. The film is an amazing, breathtaking document of the most unbelievable migration on earth.

There are two hundred miles of raging rivers and impassable mountains to cross. There are no towns, no roads, no bridges. There is no turning back.

The Bakhtiari migration is one of the most hazardous tests of human endurance known to mankind. Every year, 500,000 men, women and children — along with one million animals — struggle for eight grueling weeks to scale the massive Zagros Mountains — a range which is as high as the Alps and as broad as Switzerland — to reach their summer pastures.

Also available in 35mm prints for theatrical and nontheatrical screenings. Contact Milestone for price and availability!
