BAD O MEH – WIND AND FOG (Mohammad Ali Talebi, Iran 2011) When Sahand's father gets a job on an oil rig, the family has to move from Iran's fertile north to the hot, arid south. Soon afterwards, war breaks out with Iraq. Sahand is at home with his mother when she is killed by a bomb. He survives but goes into shock. Unable to cope, his father takes him and his sister back to their home village to stay with their grandfather. The idea is that the calm and beauty of the north will help Sahand get over his trauma, but he finds it tough. On top of this, he is picked on by the other children in the village. One day, he discovers a wounded wild goose near a close-by lake. Its feathers remind him of the white dress his mother was wearing the day she died. Although his grandfather forbids him from looking after it, Sahand sneaks out at night to find the goose.
