Le Chateau du sable (Oscar 1977)

The Sand Castle is the story of the Sandman and the creatures he sculpts out of sand. Under his direction, they build a castle and celebrate the completion of their new home, only to be interrupted by an uninvited guest. The wind blows, and the castle crumbles.

Co Hoedeman’s films are usually geared toward children and promote strong humanitarian values: ecology, social inclusion, respect for diversity, peace. Hoedeman tackles filmmaking with serious pedagogical objectives but does not sacrifice magic and fantasy in the process. In The Sand Castle, the filmmaker leaves the door open to various interpretations.
