Wind ★★★★★

this won the short film palme d’or back in 1996 and for good reason: it’s a one shot short exploring a fictional 360 panoramic take on a famous photo from 1951 by hungarian photographer lucien hervé entitled ‘the three women’.  

reminiscent to resnais’ ‘my last year at marienbad’ or the films of carl theodor dreyer, ‘wind’ uses the camera to glide past a scene that wouldn’t feel out of place during your descent final descent to hell. it’s a truly eerie work of art.
