Inspired by the stories of Argentine writer Julio Cortazar, yet blended with the realities of contemporary Latin America, here's the world debut of Wind in Our Hair, Lynne Sachs' (in person) experimental narrative about four girls discovering themselves through a fascination with the trains that pass by their house. A magic-realist tale of early-teen anticipation and disappointment, the 42-min. lyric is circumscribed by a period of profound Argentine sociopolitical unrest. Shot with 16mm, Super 8mm, and Regular 8mm film and video, the rites of passage proceed from train tracks to sidewalks, into costume stores, kitchens, and into backyards in the heart of today's Buenos Aires. PLUS: In her House of Science: A Museum of False Facts (1991), Sachs suggests that the mind/body split so characteristic of Western thought is particularly troubling for women, who may feel themselves moving between the territories of the film's title--private, public, and idealized space--without wholly inhabiting any of them. Conceptions of Woman are explored through home movies, personal reminiscences, staged scenes, found-footage and voice-over. ALSO Lynne's Atalanta: 32 Years Later; Noa, Noa; and Photograph of Wind.
