Why would a person make art that intentionally disappears? Life and Sand follows New York City sculptor/designer G. Augustine Lynas as he creates his ephemeral art in a day on the beach. Intercut with sculpting, we get a window into the poetic mind of this creative, playful, and philosophical soul, conscious of every grain of sand he touches. This film explores the symbolism of ephemeral art, human impermanence, the cycle of life and the importance of protecting the natural world.

You should definitely watch this movie. BTW G. Augustine Lynas leads the film with such a confident performance, matching both the cockiness and naivety of his character to great effect.

Was much better than I expected. Enjoyed it immensely. I’ve already watched it twice in less than a week.

Arguably this should not be a difficult film to review. It is nothing less than brilliant. The story, the direction, the musical score, the casting, the acting, the dialog. Brilliant!!! Just brilliant!

Simon Mendes never ceases to amaze. He'll make a huge hit movie and make it a smash hit.

Usually I try to be careful with over hyping a film, or setting the expectations too high, as film geeks all are guilty for, however for Simon Mendes, this really is not possible.
