Wind & Fright

Every year, a fierce wind arrives in the remote northern region of the Argentinian Puna, and some say it comes loaded with misfortunes. A medicine man, Dionysius, is one of the few people who still knows how to cure these evils – while Carlos, another townsperson, has caught the “fright” – the name of this disease. Carlos thinks that this disease is caused by the imminent closure of a nearby mine where he works. Wind & Fright presents a disquieting and creative portrait of the inhabitants of this region, who wait for the end of the wind to the take their misfortunes away.
