The halny wind is the most unpredictable element in the Polish mountains. It comes in cycles, in every spring and autumn. One never knows if or when it turns into a destructive gale. Halny particularly affects the inhabitants of Zakopane and its area, changing picturesque mountain trails into a set for an untamed performance of nature.
"The Wind. A Documentary Thriller" is a feature length polish-slovak documentary film produced by Telemark and co-produced by HBO, Nextra Film (Péter Kerekes) and Krakow Regional Film Fund.
