THE WIND BLOWS ROUND
Saturday, April 18
5:00 pm & 8:00 pm
Brown Hall 100, Washington University in St. Louis


A French shepherd, his wife, their two daughters and his goats transfer to Chersogno, a small village in the Occitan Alps. The inhabitants of the village, after a warm welcome, begin to feel uncomfortable by the presence of the new arrivals.  Jealously and incomprehension prevail and coexistence becomes more difficult.

The original title, in the occitan language, is E l'aura fai son vir, because, as a character describes at the beginning of the film, "things are like the wind, sooner or later they return".
