The Winds that Scatter (World Premiere)

Part of the Northside Film Festival. With director Christopher Bell

The Winds that Scatter, Christopher Bell, 2015, 79 minutes

Ahmad is a refugee from Syria living in the U.S. who hopes to start his own taxi service. After losing a menial job at a gas station, he attempts to navigate the American economy with optimism. Soon, however, reality sets in and he finds consistent work to be scarce. Creeping hopelessness begins to take a toll on his relationships, faith and sense of self, his dream slipping quickly from his grasp.
