Using a collection of banknotes and sand gathered from over 50 countries, “Foreign Exchange” looks like nothing you have seen before, taking you into a tiny world of dazzling details. What you observe there, and the meaning you derive from that observation depends on where you start your journey. Look closely, it’s all in the details…
“Foreign Exchange” explores the tenuous connections and reinventions that keep the global economic tides flowing. The film is made with a unique micro-sand animation stopmotion technique in which the individual grains of sand take on a life of their own.
