Sand City

Mahde Hasan



Two parallel stories about two individuals. A woman and a man. They are not directly related. Only one thing is common in their life is SAND.Emma, the woman protagonist of the film, collects sand for her cat litter. She sets out on her scooter every week and picks up her litter’s fill of sand. One day, she finds a finger in the sand - an amputated finger with a red painted nail. Instead of panicking, she gradually develops a strange bond with the lone finger.Hasan works in a sand washing plant. He steals sand from the plant to make glass at home. What starts out as a solitary activity, soon leads to a fantasy that slowly causes his own destruction.
