    • Synopsis
    • Originating in the deserts of Western China, gigantic dust clouds rise, engulfing everything in their path. Blowing from Inner Mongolia, to Beijing, to Seoul and ultimately across the Pacific, 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?
