The second feature film by Maxime Berthou and Mark Požlep, 'Southwind' is a film that emerged from the materialisation of an artistic performance led by the same French-Slovenian duo. This project, which included a descent down the Mississippi aboard a home-made steamboat, was designed to study the economic and ecological impact of corn monoculture on river banks.

Their journey began months after one of the biggest floods in American history and ended just weeks before the start of the COVID-19 pandemic and the end of Donald Trump’s term. As they travel through the "body of the nation", the film reveals a portrait of America during two crises.
