About

Inspired by the stories of Argentine writer Julio Cortazar, yet blended with the realities of contemporary Argentina, "Wind in Our Hair" is an experimental narrative directed by New York filmmaker Lynne Sachs about four girls discovering themselves through a fascination with the trains that pass by their house. A story of early-teen anticipation and disappointment, "Wind in Our Hair" is circumscribed by a period of profound Argentine political and social unrest. Shot with 16mm, Super 8mm, Regular 8mm film and video, the film 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 and her co-editor Sofia Gallisa articulate this atmosphere of urban turmoil spinning about the young girls' lives. "Wind in Our Hair" also includes the daring, ethereal music of Argentine singer Juana Molina.
