Sand und Blut (Sand and Blood)

„It was paradise, but now it's hell!“

Private video footage narrated by refugees now living in Europe offers a new and intimate perspective on Syria and Iraq's recent history: a montage of haunting images of devastation, fear, and hatred. Social networks allow refugees to follow the actions and crimes happening in their countries in real time. Sand and Blood is a montage of amateur videos from various online platforms, narrated by refugees now living in Austria. This formal approach offers a new and intimate perspective on Syria and Iraq’s recent history: a montage of haunting images of devastation, fear, and hatred. It gives the viewer the opportunity to ask questions which go beyond newspaper headlines.
Every character is given the chance to explain his own personal viewpoint, without judgement. Sand and Blood weaves these stories together in a dark and moving tapestry that ultimately forces the viewer to question the very nature of good and evil, victim and perpetrator.
