Hurricane: An Odyssey of the Wind

Original language: English

Ouragan, l'odyssee d'un vent

In distant Africa, in the deserts of Senegal, a light breeze is born. At first just playfully kicking up dust, it slowly turns into a menacing sandstorm. However, this is only the beginning. The storm turns west, towards the Atlantic. Once above the ocean, feeding on the heat from the water, it begins to grow stronger. The storm has already turned into a hurricane and bursts into the Caribbean jungle. Having seized the coast of Cuba and invaded the United States, the hurricane is already sweeping away everything in its path.

The cameras of the filmmakers follow the hurricane from space, show it through the monitors of the rescue services, and allow you to observe it through the eyes of the dead animals and frightened people. Unique and breathtaking shots remind us once again that, despite the most modern technologies, before the uncontrollable fury of nature, man is as powerless as any other creature of nature.
