A solo feature debut from Emma Tammi, The Wind is a frontier-set Western horror that has already drawn comparisons to The Witch. Don’t be mistaken though, Tammi’s combination of folklore, character drama and bone-chilling horror is all her own. This debut represents the arrival of an exciting new voice, both within and without genre, as she examines paranoia, superstition and the long-standing ramifications of violence on the psyche. With a unique score, wonderful cinematography and special attention paid to sound design, The Wind is a singular moviegoing experience and one worth seeing in theaters, especially because both screenings at the festival are free, on a first come, first serve basis.
A discussion will follow both Beyond Fest screenings with director Emma Tammi, actor Dylan McTee and others.
