Wind

Germany, 1992 (MIFF 1993, Fiction)

Director: Margit Ruile

A film poem with flying hats, talking trees and weather vanes. Wind is a lyrical and beautiful venture into the memories of an old woman.

And the little girl says "It is as if Heaven gently kissed the Earth, so that the Earth should dream of Heaven in its blossom gleam."
