That’s a wrap on “In the Sand!”
Jabari Jackson returns to his childhood inner-city neighborhood an Iraq War veteran, covered in scars. As he slowly slips back into daily life working construction, hanging out with his buddy Edwin, Jackson begins to recognize that the scars he’s brought home are more than skin deep.
Directed by Daniel Ardura, written by Miles Coulton-Thompson, produced by Marlee Kamis. Starring Nathan Walker, with Shawn Taylor, Chase Falco, Fred Motley, Timeka Scott, and Khawaja Aziz.

We are excited for another year of Cinematheque at the Grace Street Theatrer
We’ve lined up some stunning contemporary independent and foreign films this season: several Cannes selections, films by The Dardenne Brothers & Apichatpong Weerasethakul, another directed by the cousin of Lars Von Trier (Melancholia, Antichrist) – Joachim Trier, and one by our very own VCUarts Cinema program director, Rob Tregenza.
We are really really really excited about being granted access to these films, and so excited to see them on the big screen. Please come and invite your friends!
Free and open to the public, the Cinematheque is held at 7pm on Tuesday nights, 35mm projection.
