We are free to choose the life we want. We can be what we want, we can be with whom we want and where we want. We can do anything. And that's the hardest thing.
Who’s the boss aboard?
Young documentary filmmaker Honza (26) sets out on his father's sailboat to Greece, where he wants to capture how the local population perceives the refugee crisis. In the harbour, he meets siblings Matyas (24) and Natalia (22), the crew hired by Honza’s father.
Before sailing out to sea, it turns out that Honza is different from the two siblings. Matyas, the boat captain, has an unusually close relationship with his sister. He likes to make Honza feel his leading role and the unbridled soul of a man who has fled into the world to seek absolute freedom. This idea is soon disrupted with the rapprochement of Honza and Natalka, which doesn’t make Matyas very happy because it disturbs his relationship with his sister.
Siblings for life and death?
Matyas and Natalka grew up in an environment convincing them since their childhood that they would be able to achieve anything in the world. However, this infinity of possibilities begins to bind Matyas and deepen the feeling of his own incompetence, which he decides to solve his own way. Natalia is dependent on her brother and doesn’t hesitate to run away with him.
From freedom to freedom
Honza becomes interested in their story, partly because of the strangely strong relationship of both siblings, but especially because of Natalia. Honza makes her start wondering what freedom actually means for her. Is this voyage really what she's been looking for? Is there really freedom without borders?
Matyas feels he is slowly losing both the ground beneath his feet and the complete devotion of his younger sister. His idea of ideal happiness and freedom is beginning to tumble down.
The generational statement at sea poses the question:
"Are there boundaries in freedom?"
The independent author debut of director Sofie Sustkova examines fears of the post-revolutionary generation and its illusion of a carefree life on a limited space of the sailboat. A couple of young people just wanted to stretch their sails and disappear into the wind. But is it the right way to happiness? Isn’t it time for reality to catch up with them at last?
The film Into The Wind couldn’t have been created without the extraordinary team of people involved in it. Due to the capacity of the boat and the entire concept of the project, the crew was very small, which only meant more duties and requirements for each member. Huge thanks goes out to the whole team!
We have many obstacles on our way. Fortunately, there are those who are pulling us for one rope. Thank you very much for your support!
And this is what it all looked like. Have a peek at set photos and videos!
