Winner of Palme d’Or for Best Short Film in 1996. “Wind” quickly became one of the true classics of European short film heritage. Even if it gets back to the roots of Hungarian cinematographic style of the 70’s, it manages to renew, revise it in its own way. The film is based on a photograph by Lucien Hervé.
During a film course lead by Yvette Biro at the Hungarian Academy of Drama and film in 1995, the director students were shown a black-and-white photo taken by Lucien Herve in 1952, and they were given the task of writing a short film based on it. Three women are standing at the outskirts of a village, looking out of the picture in the same direction. This six-minute one-shot film shows what the Herve photo does not.
