In the Crosswind


11:30 am

In 1941, an Estonian woman and her young daughter struggle to find their way home after being deported to Siberia by the Soviet occupiers, in this dreamlike saga of survival inspired by a true story. Alissa Simon of Variety wrote: In the Crosswind” offers a unique take on the moving picture, a black and white slice of history that mixes live- action with living tableaux to provide a requiem for the inhabitants of the Baltic countries who, in the summer of 1941, were deported to Siberia or killed on Stalin’s orders..... An art film in every sense... the extraordinary visual techniques offer those open to a different sort of cinema...a very poignant experience.”
