“I see myself enter into an old neighbourhood cinema. When I reach the screening room, darkness reigns over it while, on the screen, a few pretentious aristocrats denounce all that defies self-righteous appearances. A horse killed by bullets hangs, not moving, from one of the bridges that span the Neva. Suddenly, the prisoners rise up and sing La Marseillaise, defiant, while the camera pans around them with a warm movement. At the door of his house, a devastated man watches as his wife and his small children abandon him without understanding that he has an inexorable mission to fulfil. In the sullen early morning, the partisan forces are thrown to a river that will serve as a shroud. The caravan of outcasts crosses the never-ending desert in search of a new home. After the family's breakup, the only thing that remains is the wind which moves the barley in the fields waiting to be harvested. A little old woman sits on the veranda with a rifle in her lap to defend the innocence of childhood. On the gridded page of a notebook, identical to so many others like those that I so often filled in my childhood, a hand writes: "je sais que d'habitude...". The sun rises over the sea in the vicinity of Lubeck, while the dual choir implores Jesus to have mercy on us. In the distance, Hossein catches up to Tahereh amongst the olive trees, in search of the long-awaited answer. A whispering voice reminds me that the cinema is a space that is inhabited by all histories, all that have been, all that will be. Fateful beauty. I get up. I struggle to get to my feet and I go outside, after having passed through paradise in a dream. That is my profound experience as a cinema spectator. The experience of having attended (and of continuing to attend) an imaginary, never-ending film in which, tied together, in a continuous circle, are images that the winds of many a story have gathered in a unique narrative that only has been told to me”. Santos Zunzunegui
