Sand And Blood
A stunning piece of montage cinema, Sand And Blood combines amateur footage gathered from online platforms, with the narration of refugees now living in Austria, to create a visceral and personal account of the recent history of Iraq and Syria. The foregrounding of first hand testimony offers a strikingly intimate perspective on these conflicts revealing the chaotic, complex and all too human story of escalating societal violence as experienced on the ground.
Filmmakers Matthias Krepp and Angelika Spang are expected to attend and participate in a post-screening Q&A.
