A dark yet emotive tale of the refugee crisis and the nature of modern warfare, Matthias Krepp’s SAND AND BLOOD screens at this year’s East End Film Festival.
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.
