In the Podhale region in Poland, the Halny wind blows in cycles several times a year, in spring and in autumn. It is unpredictable, so you never know if—or when—it will metamorphose into a destructive storm, transforming the picturesque mountain chains into a décor dominated by the savage performance of nature. Coming from the highest of the Carpathian Mountains, in addition to the dread it provokes among the population, it moreover seems to trigger heart attacks, acts of madness and violence, or other strange effects on the women or men most sensitive to its appearance. Built much like a thriller, The Wind. A Documentary Thriller develops an impressive symphonic account, examining nature and the inhabitants to chart a mysterious phenomenon. A genuine cinematographic tour de force, it is particularly successful in capturing the tension of a place, notably thanks to its rigorous editing, adopting the form of an astonishing documentary thriller.
