Where the Wind Blows

Il Vento Soffia Dove Vuole

64th TIFF: Greek Premiere

In a small town in the mountains of Italy, a young man experiences his own personal religious revelation and finds his flock in the form of a humble farmer who reignites the flame of his wavering faith. Filled with religious references but preaching its own “heretical” gospel, Marco Righi's film, above all, places its faith in humanity and in the almost mystical power of introspective cinema, one that is penetrating and willing to question deep and universally human concepts. Calm and tranquil, much like a soothing evening breeze or the distant chime of a bell on a mountainside, this film carries a profoundly humanistic message, and speaks to our relationship with things unseen and personal. Without attempting to indoctrinate anyone into anything, it aims to let your mind and soul wander through ideas and possibilities freely, much like the gentle breeze of the wind.
