Presentation of The Wind (1928)

Manuel Hidalgo

The writer and critic Manuel Hidalgo highlights the figure of Lillian Gish, the film’s intellectual author and its main character, apart from the wind. The conquering of the earth, a text that appears in the film’s introductory intertitles, is a central issue in the North-American mentality and in this film translates into one woman’s search for her place on earth, drawing on her own strength.
