The Outer Banks are a slim and moving line of sand in the open Atlantic. Many travelers think they know these islands—but south of Ocracoke Inlet rises a luminous bar of sand sixty miles in extent, with no roads, no bridges: the wild, remote beaches of Cape Lookout, one of the few remaining natural barrier islands in the world. Both exaltation and elegy, Ribbon of Sand profiles this seascape and the transitory islands doomed to disappear. Narrated by Meryl Streep and John Grabowska, Music by Todd Boekelheide.
