The Starry Sand Beach

A Short film by Nina Barbier, Huang Hsin-chien

Produced by Lucid Realities

Production year : 2021


    The Starry Sand Beach is a scientific fairy tale about the starry grains of sand found on multiple beaches across the East China Sea, and the legend that surrounds them. 

    The experience is divided into three parts: the legend, the underwater forest and the exploration of the Earth’s ancient geological memory. All throughout the experience and along with the foraminifera, you witness signs of the many threats to the marine and coral microorganisms, embodied by a sea serpent symbolizing the acidification of the oceans.
