CITY OF SAND. captures the lives of sand in the city of Accra, providing an intimate insight into the environmental and social changes underway in the expanding metropolis. 

​CITY OF SAND. takes sand as an entry point into the complexity of urban life. By tracking the many movements of sand - and its many intersections with the city's people and environments - the documentary delivers a novel visual rendition of an urban landscape in-the-making. 

​CITY OF SAND. brings sand miners, truck drivers, farming communities, policy makers and government officials into the same visual space to unpack what sand means in contemporary Accra - and how  we might better manage this depleting resource at the heart of our increasingly urban planet.
