“Pick Up The Wind” follows Anthony, a young child from the small, rural town of San Antonio de los Baños, Cuba. We experience the quotidien rituals of his daily life. While Anthony displays contradictory traits of creativity, destruction, rigidity, and tenderness, a story emerges from the multidimensionality of Anthony’s layered personality.
