From writer/director Leila Djansi, whose other project Ties That Bind just released an official trailer which we just posted, comes another Ghanaian drama Sinking Sands. We profiled the film back in April when it was screening at Cannes. Sands was the winner of several awards at this year's African Movie Academy Awards (AMAA) including best actress and screenplay.

The film stars Jimmy Jean Louis (Heroes) and British-Ghanaian actress and former TV presenter, Ama K Abebrese. They play couple Pabi and Jimah, who are "happily married and living a peaceful life when disaster strikes in the form of a domestic accident which leaves Jimah with a scar. Unable to live with his new features, his anger and hurt turn him into a monster. The once peaceful relationship turns into abuse."
