Note / This film was made in response to wagonloads of autumn leaves that Van Warmerdam saw being delivered to a coastal town somewhere in Belgium. Shortly afterwards she collected leaves on the Elswout country estate near Haarlem and laid them out to dry on the floor of her studio. She used them for the film loop Wind, which opens with leaves being lifted up and blown along, carried by gusts of wind in a deserted industrial environment. MvW: ‘A lone feather is whisked away on a sudden breeze, which to me makes this my most narrative film so far. Fortunately, just before the end of the film, the feather is completely reabsorbed into the mass of blowing leaves; not much happened.’
