The film by Michał Bielawski is invited to the competition at the prestigious Trieste Film Festival. The event is held at the end of the month.

Trieste International Film Festival is held since 1989 and it is currently considered one of the most important festivals in Central and Eastern Europe.  In the extremely rich programme of the event you can find both award-winning feature films and excellent documentaries, there is also no lack of special sections.

The film by Michał Bielawski will compete for the awards at this year’s edition of the festival. The protagonist of the film “The Wind. A Documentary Thriller,”  is the halny wind – one of the most unpredictable forces in the Polish mountains. It appears cyclically every spring and autumn. You can never know if and when it would turn into a destructive windstorm. The halny wind affects particularly the inhabitants of Zakopane and its surrounding area, changing the picturesque mountain trails into the space of uncontrollable nature.

The 31st edition of the festival is held from the 17th to the 22nd of January.

You can find more information about the festival on its official website.
