The Wind: A Documentary Thriller
First screened in June 2019
Director: Michał Bielawski. Documentary about the destructive halay wind in southern Poland and its violent impact on the region and its people.

Twitter Capsule: Quite a rarity! Exquisite framing and light, fractured structure, shivery mood in potent tension.

VOR:   Never settles into the familiar templates of regional life-study or the eco-nightmare that audiences might expect. Broken, but full with detail.
