  • Sandgrains in Albania

    Premiere in Albania! This one was definitely not planned :-)

    Cinema has a key role in educating and raising awareness, at the same time as entertaining. The Environmental Film Festival Albania holds and defends the idea that the right to environment is a right for everyone, a common good that has a great relevance and importance for our daily life and for the planet we live in.

    These are the reasons why Sandgrains has been specifically picked by the festival team to be screened. Their goal is screening the best environmental movies and documentaries, both international and Albanian, in order to involve the majority of the Albanian society, from different ages, backgrounds and places.

    The second edition of the Environmental Film Festival Albania will take place on 17-24 May 2014 in four cities across the country: Tirana, Permet, Vlora and Shkodra.

  • Sandgrains Cape Verdian music

    To realize the music of Sandgrains, Mirco Buonomo, our sound engineer, met and worked with two Cape Verdeans musicians: To Alves and Ronaldo Espirito Santo, with whom he recorded 3 songs in Cape Verde. To Alves is a well-known musician of the Cape Verdian panorama; Mirco recorded with him two unreleased songs that the musician wanted to give us as a contribution for the documentary, showing a great sensitivity to the issues covered in Sandgrains. Ronaldo Espirito Santo is a young emergent musician, discovered by Mirco; he was soon interested to collaborate for the project and we hope that this will help his music to make known off from Cape Verde. Both musicians exhibited a strong altruism and spirit of sharing, showing once again the big heart which characterizes the inhabitants of these islands.
