Hamsou-el-rimal (Whispering Sands)
What secret has pushed this Canadian woman of Arab descent into the desert? What is the essence of those popular tales that the local guide recounts during the long trip they both undertake passing through the ruined childhood places of the guide? We are far beyond drama. Only are left, the deep pain and the awful sense of loss. WHISPERING SANDS is a film that sways between a wounded Arab history and a future that one fears fatal.
