“The struggle of the Tuareg people of Mali to hold onto their nomadic traditions is the subject of Isabella Sandri’s poignant docu ‘The Sand Raft’." ('Variety')
Special Jury Prize at the 21° Turin Film Festival
The story of a housewife who, in order not to go mad, commits her pain to four notebooks. It is also the story of her slow but lucid and life-affirming liberation from a marriage that was suffocating her freedom.
The film follows a gang of youths who spend every day collecting scrap metal from derelict houses. They live in Pozzuoli, an old fishing village which has repeatedly been hit by earthquakes.
