The Hissing of Summer Sands

O Mar Enrola na Areia

Directed by Catarina Mourao
Portugal, 2019
Documentary, Short, Avant-Garde


Film newsreels show a mixed crowd enjoying seaside fun. Every summer however, a man appears on the beaches. Meticulously dressed, announcing himself with a blast on a whistle. A worrying or familiar figure, who makes children run away or attracts them like the Pied-Piper of Hamelin.
