Full disclosure: Christopher Bell is a former contributor to The Playlist, so yes, we're promoting the work of someone on the site. But you know what? We're more than happy to, especially when it looks this compelling. Those of us around The Playlist water cooler kinda of knew Chris was working on something—and he has numerous shorts under his belt already—but we had no idea that "The Winds That Scatter" would look anything like this.

We're happy to exclusively unveil the first trailer for the film, which seems to meet somewhere at the crossroads of Ramin Bahrani and the Dardennes. A close collaboration between Bell, his director photography Paul Taylor, and actors Ahmad Chahrour and Mohammad Dagman, the story follows Ahmad, an immigrant from Syria, who dreams of starting his own taxi service. When he loses his job at a gas station, his optimistic attempts to navigate through the current American economic climate are met with harsh reality, taking a toll on his relationships, faith, and sense of self.

This one definitely looks promising, so keep an eye out on the 2014 festival circuit for "The Winds That Scatter." For more info click here.

    I can't imagine liking anything as much as you apparently like The Place Beyond The Pines.
