Wind Should Be Heard Not Seen

Wind Should Be Heard Not Seen

Wind Should Be Heard Not Seen takes us on a lyrical journey through countries and cultures, connected by an unlikely foe: dust. Originating in the deserts of Western China, gigantic dust clouds rise, engulfing everything in their path. Blowing across the globe, the film rides the winds of our changing planet, connecting us all through the air we breathe. Taking its name from a Mongolian proverb – “wind should be heard, but never seen” – the film bears witness to human adaptation in the face of increasing environmental change: but is it our greatest strength, or our downfall?
