Facing the Wind

A Feature film by Meritxell Colell Aparicio

Release in France : 05/06/2019


    Mónica, a 47-year old dancer, receives a call from Spain: her father is terminally ill. After 20 years, Mónica must return to the remote village where she was born. When she arrives, her father has already passed away and her mother decides to sell the family home asking Mónica to stay to help her.
    Winter comes. The perpetual silence, the extreme cold and the difficulty of living with her mother are proving tough for Mónica, who takes refuge in what she knows best: dance.
    Facing the Wind tells the story of a family unable to communicate. It is indeed a thoughtful and loving portrait of a traditional rural lifestyle, which is beginning to disappear. It’s a story about distances. But most of all, Facing the Wind is an inner journey to learn again how to live and love better.
