Sandstorm (too dt . Sandstorm) is a Canadian film drama from 2004. The film focuses on the persecution of Falun Gong vehicle trailers in China, by the 610 Office .


The main character is the policeman He Tian Ying, who is involved in the re-education of Falun Gong practitioners. A practitioner resisted the torture and told him that his bad deeds only harm himself, as they ultimately fall back on him. The bad morality of society will inevitably fall back on them as a whole and manifest itself in disaster. This is in line with the philosophy of Falun Gong.

There is a strong sandstorm in which many people die. The policeman and his wife Tong Mou are locked in their home with no electricity, no telephone, and little food and water. Her daughter was at the school waiting to be picked up, her fate is uncertain.

While his wife is slowly dying from an illness, the policeman reflects on his actions and finds out about Falun Gong. At the end of the film, he learns that his daughter was saved by committed Falun Gong practitioners along with many other people.

Sandstorm has won awards at several smaller film festivals around the world.
