Sand Path addresses migration, by telling the family story of the Canarian-German actress and director Aïda Ballmann who travels through Senegal visiting the places where her parents lived before she was born. In this adventure she discovers that her identity is the product of a Senegalese, Canarian and German cultural mix.
Sand Path invites you to reflect on humanity, cultural mixtures and the learning opportunity offered by this diversity. Beyond that, humans have much more in common than differences. From that point of view, what is the point of wars and borders?
