      Joanne Laurier World Socialist Web Site Sounds of Sand speaks to the long-standing colonial plunder and devastation of a continent that has spawned a vicious layer of native thugs and criminals... Sep 2, 2020 Full Review Dorothy Woodend The Tyee (British Columbia) This is not an easy film to watch, so be forewarned. The personal costs paid by one family bring home the abstract idea of climate refugees. Aug 23, 2017 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member Potentially meaningful story. Below average directing, plus not enough materials for a feature's length however. Would be much impressive if were only 30-45 minutes (maximum) short instead. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member krachtig verhaal naar het boek 'Chamelle', sterke beelden, universele setting, maar iets te eenvoudig gebracht, karakters worden minimaal uitgediept en sterven bij de vleet, zonder dat de kijker geëmotioneerd wordt ... zat meer in Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member periple d une famille africaine en quete d'un nouveau chez-soi avec eau a disponibilite. Tres beaux paysages mais je ne peux pas comprendre la plupart des reactions des protagonistes face a certaines situations (enfant qui meurt, donner sa fille volontiers etc). Je n'ai pas de vision assez africaine pour cela...! Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Audience Member Very sad and moving. Wonderful music. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member ... allez viens boire un p'tit coup àla maison ! Hum... Non, c'est beau (youpie !!!), mais cela touche au pathos, bien qu'on y glisse en douceur. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member a life and death struggle of an african family...emotionally uninvolving. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Read all reviews
