Dry Wind

Vento Seco

Greek premiere

July’s dry wind and unbearable humidity transform the small city of Catalão into a whirlpool of sweltering heat and underlying excitation. Sandro’s routine of work, soccer, and partying, as well as his relationship with Ricardo, are about to be unsettled by the arrival of Maicon, an alluring young man clouded in mystery. A tale of forbidden and repressed desires set against the backdrop of the unexplored and mystical landscape of the Brazilian Midwest.
