About Sand Storm
Sand Storm tracks wedding festivities as they get underway in a Bedouin village in Southern Israel. Jalila finds herself in the awkward position of hosting her husband Suliman's marriage to a second, much younger wife. During the celebration, Jalila stumbles across her eldest daughter Layla's involvement with a boy from her university - a strictly forbidden liaison that would shame the family. Burying the indignity of Suliman and his new bride living next door, Jalila also tries to contain Layla's situation by clamping down on her. But Layla sees a different life for herself...
Winner of the World Cinema Grand Jury Prize this year at Sundance where it world premiered, as well as six Ophir Awards (the Israeli Oscars(R)) including Best Film and Best Director, Sand Storm is also nominated for a European Film Awards prize.
