Competition - Fiction

Should the Wind Drop

By Nora Martirosyan

Alain, played by the captivating Grégoire Colin, arrives in Stepanakert, capital of Nagorno-Karabakh, to assess the airport and open this self-proclaimed republic to the world. But Alain knows nothing about this strange territory or its inhabitants, and things don't go according to plan... Selected at Cannes, Armenian director Nora Martirosyan's first film impresses with its formal mastery and its restrained and delicate screenplay.
