A dramatic film screening by Anne Marie Nakagawa
In an unnamed place, in an unnamed time, a man and a woman go through the motions of life, fused to each other for a reason neither of them can remember. Meandering through a withering landscape of loneliness and thread-bare self consciousness, Sand Castle is an experimental film that explores the futility of relationship and our inability to escape it. In this stark black and white world, all desires and memories are sublimated into shades of grey.
