Colour of the Wind

Colour of the Wind is a cinematic portrait of monstrous dust storms that rise from the deserts of Western China and the people that emerge from the dust along its path. Touching down in cities and towns from the deserts of western China to the shores of California, we meet characters confronted by the dust - from its most ominous form as an enormous, devastating storm in a drying desert to its tiniest incarnation as a speck studied under a microscope. More than a journalistic look at an environmental problem, the film is a lyrical journey that rides the winds of our changing planet, exploring what life is like under the dust along the way and the very relationship people have to the air they breathe.
