The Wind Will Carry Us

David D'Arcy profiles Iranian filmmaker Abbas Kiarostami. The San Francisco Film Festival has just presented him with their lifetime achievement award. Given the latest news from Iran, Kiarostami offers some surprising insights into the government's impact on the arts. His earlier film, "Taste of Cherry," shared the Palme d'Or three years ago at Cannes. Kiarostami's new movie, "The Wind Will Carry Us," opens in American theaters next month.
