The Wind

HippFest 2024 concludes with the world premiere of the prestigious new restoration of one of cinema’s greatest achievements.

Screen legend Lillian Gish is Letty, a sweet-natured young woman who tries to start a new life with her cousin in the desolate and unforgiving landscape of West Texas. There she is met with hostility by her cousin’s hard-edged wife, and the brutal indifference of Nature itself. Containing many elements central to the Western – the settlers’ struggle, harsh frontier surroundings, lawlessness, honour and self-determination – this is ultimately a stirring psychological study of one woman at odds with the world she finds herself in.
