Wind in Our Hair movie sceneInspired by the stories of Argentine writer Julio Cortazar, yet blended with the realities of contemporary Argentina, 2009’s Wind in Our Hair is an experimental narrative by New York-based filmmaker Lynne Sachs (The Small Ones). The film is about four girls discovering themselves through a common fascination with the trains that pass by their house.

Shot with 16mm, Super 8mm, regular 8mm film and video, the movie follows the girls to the train tracks, into kitchens, on sidewalks, in costume stores and into backyards in the heart of Buenos Aires as well as the outskirts of town.

Sachs and her Argentine collaborators move about Buenos Aires with their cameras, witnessing the four playful girls as they wander a city embroiled in a debate about the role of agribusiness, food resources and taxes. Using an intricately constructed Spanish-English “bilingual” soundtrack, Sachs articulates this atmosphere of urban turmoil spinning about the young girls’ lives.

A story of early-teen anticipation and disappointment circumscribed by a period of profound Argentine political and social unrest, Wind in Our Hair also includes the ethereal music of Argentine singer Juana Molina.

The art house film has a running time of 42 minutes.
