Title: The Sand Castle/Le château de sable
Director: Hoedeman, Co
Year: 1977
Length: 13 min 12 s

A fable of great humour and appeal, The Sand Castle is the story of the Sandman and the creatures he sculpts out of sand. Under his direction, they build a castle and celebrate the completion of their new home, only to be interrupted by an uninvited guest. The wind blows, and the castle crumbles. The filmmaker leaves the door open to various interpretations. Sound film without words.
