“It was paradise, but now it’s hell!“

If the complex situation of the Middle East conflict zones leave one feeling a little fatigued or bewildered, this offers a viscerally immediate experience of the situation. Comprised entirely of contemporaneous found footage filmed by activists, combatants and civilians, and featuring the off-screen testimonies of European based Iraqi and Syrian refugees who speak with disarming candour, Sand and Blood provides a bracingly personal perspective on the fall of Saddam, the Arab Spring and the rise of ISIS.
