On Thursday, October 5 and Friday, October 6, everything has to do with the element sand. Sand artist Alla Chruikova from Munich emphasises that “sand is a material particularly familiar to children.” In numerous live sand-shows in front of child audiences, she has experienced the inspiring effect of sand on children: “It has a special plasticity; it is light, luminous, and flowing at the same time.” She will present two of her sand-animations (WOMAN BELOW THE ICE, DE 2003, 8 min. and A FAT LITTLE LADY, DE 2005, 3 min.) as well as a live sand-show at the Caligari FilmBühne in Wiesbaden on October 5 and at the cinema at the Deutsches Filmmuseum on October 6. Children will be able to try out the animation technique that creates figures and stories from sand.
