From Dust is a cinematic expose of one Government’s response to a natural disaster. Filmed in Sri Lanka after the devastating tsunami, it reveals the motives behind a new law that prevented survivors from rebuilding their homes along the island’s coastline. Told through the stories of 2 survivors and an aid worker, this observational documentary is a sensitive depiction of lives that waited in tents while the global tourism industry re-positioned itself on their land. At a time when developing countries on the long march to prosperity often ride roughshod over the poor, this film tells a shocking story about a picturesque island that turned a natural disaster into an opportunity and left its survivors searching for land in the shadows of history’s largest aid effort.
