Filmed entirely from an apartment window, Seifollah Samadian's short film focuses on a woman who braves an unprecedented Tehran snowstorm in order to use public transportation.

The simplicity of the action and motivation soon dissolve into a profound statement on the human condition. It's no wonder director Abbas Kiarostami regards this short as one of his favorite documentaries.

This video also includes Deadtime and Tehran: The 25th Hour.

This film is available with a Digital Site License (DSL), which allows colleges, universities, or libraries to encode, locally host, and stream the film to their community on a closed, password-protected system.
