Against The Wind follows a handful of practitioners of the almost forgotten sport as they take advantage of one of the coldest winters the Hudson River Valley has seen in decades. These yachters are intent on taking full advantage of one of the deepest, longest ice sheets on the Hudson in years, knowing they might not see its like again anytime soon.
Tomasz Gubernat is a filmmaker based in Brooklyn, New York City. His interest in urbanism and the forces that influence the built environment motivated his short video portrait City of Shanghai which debuted at the Venice Architecture Biennial in 2006.
