Cat Fly film festival presents, as part of the Connect Beyond “Homegrown Films” series:
Whistle Down Wind takes place in a tiny mountain town in Western North Carolina. Our story centers two young women, Alex and Janie, who have been best friends since childhood but are now caught in a secret relationship. Alex is cheating on her high-school sweetheart, and Janie is becoming increasingly restless with the intolerant nature of her hometown. Our film finds them at a crossroads, the boiling point of their complicated but beautiful relationship.
