The Wind (1928), was the final silent film to be released by MGM. Its director, Victor Sjöström, and star, Lillian Gish, are considered to be amongst the greats of the genre. Based on a supernatural novel by Dorothy Scarborough, the film depicts the loneliness of life in a small Texas town during the 1880s and the psychological turmoil of a young woman, induced by the advances of lustful men and an incessant wind.

It will be introduced by artist, performer, curator and theatre-maker Sue Hill. Sue is a founding artist of Wildworks, the ambitious Cornwall-based landscape theatre company. She was also a key member of the original Kneehigh team and served as Artistic Director for the Eden Project. You can read her introduction here.
