The production and costume design are the real stars here. Showcasing a predominately female crew, including production designers Hillary and Courtney Andujar, set decorator Elsbeth Mumm, and costume designer Kate De Blasio, everything from the dresses to the furniture and quilts in the cabins are authentic to the time period. These details greatly enhance the tone of the simplistic lifestyle on the plains.

‘The Wind’ becomes a tour de force of Tammi’s carefully composed images and a stunning central performance by Gerard. The cinematography (Lyn Moncrief) and spare but effective production design (Courtney Andujar, Hillary Andujar) also are notable.
