Should the Wind Drop

France, Armenia, Belgium2020101mincolorFiction

Hailing from Amernia herself, Director Nora Martirosyan’s first feature film ///Should the Wind Drop/// sends a solemn and sensitive homage to Armenians of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic, a breakaway state in the South Caucasus that is not internationally recognized. International auditor Alain, a Frenchman, is dispatched to audit airports in the Caucasus to approve the reopening of a facility that hasn’t operated for a long time. Edgar, a young boy from the area, wanders around the airport making suspicious deals. To Alain, an outsider, what the airport means to the locals is a total mystery. Borders have a completely different meaning to the people who live in on-going conflict and genocide, compared to what outsiders see on Google Maps. Nora Martirosyan's camera carefully captures the scenery of this barren and broken land.
