Sokout (The Silence) – Mohsen Makhmalbaf – 1998

Everyday, 10-year old Khorsid takes the bus to his work at an instrument maker’s shop and everyday something unexpected happens.

-

Because of his special gift in identifying objects by the sounds they make, a blind young boy is employed as a string instrument tuner in a small village in Tajikistan. He may be blind but that does not mean he cannot see. On his way to work, he could tell the quality of the bread the young girls along the streets are peddling by simply touching their ware. His world is made more colorful and quaint because of his sensitivity to his surroundings. The only problem is that he is easily “tempted” by street musicians’ performances and arrives late at work.
