We are waiting for you to join us in this event, to meet and exchange ideas, to have a glass of wine before and after the screening of the film in the cinema bar.
Few words on the film...
Director: Marion Hänsel
On the one hand, there’s the desert eating away at the land. The endless dry season, the lack of water. On the other there’s the threat of war. The village well has run dry. The livestock is dying. Trusting their instinct, most of the villagers leave and head south. Rahne, the only literate one, decides to head east with his three children and Mouna, his wife. A few sheep, some goats and Chamelle, a dromedary, are their only riches. A tale of exodus, quest, hope and fatality.
Rahne and his family travel across hostile lands under a lethal sun, walking endlessly onwards and frequently crossing paths with death. But Sounds of Sand is also a parable about determination and eternity that takes us in the footsteps of Shasha, a nomad child full of the joys of life, whose tenacity and strength will conquer her father’s love.
We would like to thank:
Marion Hänsel, for allowing us to show the film, Andreas Sotirakopoulos (cinema MIKROKOSMOS), Marina Gioti (artistic director of ECOCINEMA), Manolis Verigakis and Maria Karagiannaki.
