THE WIND. A DOCUMENTARY THRILLER

POLISH TITLE: WIATR. THRILLER DOKUMENTALNY

The halny wind is the most unpredictable element in the Polish mountains. It comes in cycles, in every spring and autumn. One never knows if or when it turns into a destructive gale. Halny particularly affects the inhabitants of Zakopane and its area, changing picturesque mountain trails into a set for an untamed performance of nature.
