GRAIN OF SAND
Bahrain, 2017, 55 min.
Director: Jason Carter
Documentary about the musical heritage of the Bahraini pearl divers seen through the eyes of the British musician Jason Carter. “Grain of Sand” is an effort to shed light on the dying music of the pearl divers and asks poignant questions about identity, culture and heritage in a fast-developing region; and it brings some “good news” from an area currently rife with conflict.
