There is a place in the Podhole region of Poland where emotions burst out several times a year, and the life of the local community is changed forever. The halny wind comes in cycles, every spring and autumn. One never knows if or when it will turn into a destructive gale. Halny particularly affects the inhabitants of Zakopane and its area, changing picturesque mountain trails into a set for an untamed performance of a human struggle against destructive forces of nature. The Wind: A Documentary Thriller (2019) is directed by Michał Bielawski,

Running Time: 75 minutes

Presented in partnership with the Environmental Film Festival in the Nation’s Capital.
