A wild wind haunts a virginal girl in this seminal gothic drama of suppressed sexuality, accompanied by jazz-influenced pianist Lola Perrin’s elemental new score, winner of the Silent London Best Live Score 2011.
‘First lady of the silent screen’ Lillian Gish gives is transcendent as the sweet, virginal Hetty, who moves out West to her cousin’s ranch in the ‘land o the winds’. Forced to marry Lige and inhabit his isolated shack, she is driven insane by the wild wind in this visually stunning classic.
