Sand Dollars
Filmfest 2015

In an idyllic seaside city in the Dominican Republic, the long-time relationship between a beautiful and impoverished young local girl and her wealthy European lover is put to the test as issues of class, inequality and exploitation rise to the surface.

"SAND DOLLARS was born from our wish to portray a world full of contradictions, contradictions that go from parties and vacations, to love, betrayal, pleasure, morality and loneliness. This is the world that emerges from the book 'Sand Dollars' written by the French author, Jean-Noël Pancrazi."
