Sand und Blut

Sand and Blood

Matthias Krepp, Angelika Spangel
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.
