A wild wind haunts a virginal girl in this seminal gothic drama of suppressed sexuality, accompanied by jazz-influenced pianist Lola Perrin's elemental new score, winner of Silent London's 2011 Best Live Score Award.

'First lady of the silent screen' Lillian Gish is transcendent as the sweet, virginal Hetty, who moves out West to her cousin's ranch in the 'land o the winds'. Forced to marry Lige and inhabit his isolated shack, she is driven insane by the wild wind in this visually stunning classic.

Pianist and composer Lola Perrin has been widely published and recorded to critical acclaim for her imaginative jazz textures and minimalist themes, touring internationally and regularly featuring on BBC Radio 3. 'Hauntingly compelling' (Guardian).




Presented in association with Birds Eye View Film Festival.

Birds Eye View Film Festival was the vision of Rachel Millward and Pinny Grylls as a response to the industry numbers indicating that men directed 92% of films on general release. They set out to create a festival that celebrated female filmmakers. Starting out as a short film festival BEV has grown to become one of the most respected platforms for showcasing female film talent.
