High above the world on Mount Washington in New Hampshire, the wind is a constant companion. It whips violently around the mountaintop, craggy in winter from hardened snowfall and in summer from the brown rocks beneath. The sun rarely makes an appearance, bursting occasionally through the thin crack between thick cloud cover and the distant horizon. At the last human-operated weather observatory in North America, the shifts in wind speed, visibility, barometric pressure, and temperature have been measured hourly since 1932. By reenacting this solitary work, filmmaker Jacqueline Goss draws our attention to its repetitive and anachronistic nature and to the subtle forces acting on this dramatic landscape.

Co-presented by Anthology Film Archives
