Second Wind is a short film that attempts to solve a difficult problem – to show the tragical destiny of the planet in small form. Maybe this is why the film has no words in it, but only the main character’s cry of despair. This person is forced to live in the vacuum of the dead nature, but, like a reckless poet, he reads his naive poem every day to the dry wind and flowers made of cans. There are neither words nor rhymes in this poem – there is only wind, the second wind.
Sergey Tsyss graduated from The Vakhtangov Theatre Institute as an actor and has worked as a director and artist in Russia. His debut short film Second Wind has received 60 international awards and was screened on more than 300 film festivals worldwide.
