“Just because something is a fantasy doesn’t mean the needs it can satisfy are not very real...”

The film’s visual language is inherently queer — queer modes of looking are all about longing, and Dry Wind is all lingering shots of glances held long, beautiful bodies beheld in beautiful lighting.

In July, the dry wind and low humidity dry the skin of a small city residents. Dividing his days between the city club, work, swimming, anonymous sex, soccer with friends and city parties, loner Sandro’s live takes a turn when Maicon emerges from the small town.
