'The Sand Storm' is a secretive movie project that is impressive for a number of reasons. First of all, it stars famous Chinese contemporary artist, Ai WeiWei. Secondly, it was shot entirely under the radar of the Chinese government. Thirdly, it depicts a dystopian future in which there is essentially no water left in the world. Yet 'The Sand Storm' is about more than a water smuggler (WeiWei) and a lack of global hydration, it is about struggle and relationships.
Written and directed by New York filmmaker Jason Wishnow, 'The Sand Storm' is currently seeking crowdfunding from Kickstarter. Although it is pretty much finished, they hope they can recoup costs now that they can talk about it without fear of being shut down.
