Compelling, poignant, sometimes funny stories of cross-cultural encounters or collisions, both true and fiction, from around the world are screened at the International Film Festival.
In the Crosswind
(Estonia, Martti Helde, 2014, 87 mins)
Estonian director Martti Helde creates a heartbreaking portrait of the 1941 Soviet mass deportation of Baltic citizens to Siberia. Based on the diary of a young wife and mother struggling to find her way home, scenes are recreated as dream-like black and white tableaux vivants in which the actors stand motionless while the camera remains in motion.
