Director: Ciro Guerra
“For centuries we've asked ourselves: What keeps us apart? Now is time to ask what brings us together.” - filmmaker Ciro Guerra
Carrying a cursed piano-accordion said to be stolen from the devil himself, minstrel Ignacio sets out on a journey to return the instrument to his mentor, vowing never to play again. But when teenager Fermin follows with a wish to be mentored himself, their trek becomes an epic wild-west style struggle filled with lively South American music and beautiful sweeping vistas.
“With its stunning widescreen landscapes, colourful musical interludes and sure human touch, The Wind Journeys occupies a niche not too far from nature- and landscape-dominated world cinema releases such as Himalaya or Tulpan.” - Screen International
Multi-award winner including the Award of the City of Rome at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival.
