Catch the Wind which will now screen on Sunday 4th Mar at 10am in Lighthouse 2


Gaël Morel’s thoughtful, timely drama sees a woman embrace drastic change in socio-economic circumstances. When the owners of a French-based factory decide to cut costs by relocating to Tangier in Morocco, leaving workers with the option of unemployment or relocation, they expect little uptake  -  least of all from middle-aged mother Edith. But she has other ideas. Estranged from her son and with little to hold her down, Edith decides to pack up her life and take on the change  -  and complications -  that follow.

With the support of the French Embassy in Ireland

SANDRINE BONNAIRE IS SUPERB AS A FRENCH WOMAN RELOCATED TO MOROCCO IN HOPES OF FINDING EMPLOYMENT AND A BETTER LIFE.
