Emma Tammi’s feature debut is an American folk-horror western that pushes the genre quite a bit into gore, supernatural, ghostspace and magical realism, but it is essentially a drama about female disenfranchisement and domestic solitude. Set in the 1890s, The Wind, which premiered at Toronto, centres on Lizzy, who has moved to the American West with her husband to settle a desolate stretch of prairie. She begins to sense a sinister presence that seems to be borne of the land itself, an overwhelming dread that her husband dismisses as superstition. The Wind evokes a godforsaken world in which the forces of nature come alive with quivering menace-howls in the night, shadows, smoke, fire, wind.
This film contains scenes of sexuality/violence that might disturb some viewers.
