Dust in the Wind

Dust in the Wind

Hou continued to mine an autobiographical vein in his next film, set in an impoverished village. Dust in the Wind charts the development of a high school romance, interrupted by years of forced military service. Hou continues to develop the stately long take visuals and elliptical storytelling that would become his directorial hallmarks, in this keenly-felt story of loneliness and regret.
