Critic Reviews for Sand Storm (Sufat Chol)
It's set in the heart of the desert, but the disturbances of the quietly impressive "Sand Storm" rage not in the natural world but in the intimate corners of the human heart.
It's a fairly familiar critique of patriarchy from a humanist, feminist perspective, but one put across with some very impressive filmmaking skills by a first-time director.
As a director, Ms. Zexer has a fine eye for the texture of daily life, which she fills in with resonant physical details and sweeping, scene-setting views.
Audience Reviews for Sand Storm (Sufat Chol)
If being made by an Israeli woman would perhaps indicate bias against Bedouin cultures living in the country (and that is material for an article), at least Zexer does a solid job in her first full-length feature with a sad story that relies on some very fine performances.
