Hwangsa (Wind Should Be Heard Not Seen)

Directed by Claire Sanford

HWANGSA (Wind Should Be Heard Not Seen) is a documentary feature about dust and our relationship to the air we breathe. Told from the point of view of a Canadian cinematographer with an intimate relationship to nature, the film traces dust found on the shores of Western Canada back to its origins in China’s Gobi Desert where storm clouds of yellow dust evaporate the skylines, swallowing up everything in sight.

Since receiving the 2016 Redford Center Grant development award, the short film has been screened at Hot Docs and DOXA, received support from the Catapult Film Fund, and the filmmakers were invited to participate in the 2018 CPH:FORUM.

The feature-length film is currently in production.
