The Sand That Ate The Sea documents the South Australian Opal mining town Andamooka.
The Country that surrounds Andamooka is a mystical place. Millennia ago it was an ocean, and opalised aquatic dinosaur fossils are still found in the dirt there today. It is home to an arid land and deep, old magic. It is a place of endless sweeping salt flats and undulating flat red earth. It is where some of the last Colonial Australian frontiersmen call home, and remains to them some kind of frontier. The land is also a stolen land, and a cursed land. That wound has a unique way of working on the people that are born there new, and those who came before.
