This fascinating and moving film by award-winning director Penny Woolcock is a lyrical portrait of Britain’s coastline, created through an exquisite combination of evocative archive footage drawn from the BFI National Archive, stirring music and SFX. Truly exceptional special features include several historic bonus maritime documentaries, a ‘making of’ film and a booklet.
Full description from the producer:
From the Sea to the Land Beyond is a unique collaboration between award-winning filmmaker Penny Woolcock and one of Britain’s best loved bands, British Sea Power. Using decades of BFI Archive Footage, the film explores the role the coast plays in our lives; whether it’s a trip into busy, colourful seaside towns or the remote Scottish Isles. The film is an evocative and sometimes nostalgic piece of work to inspire people to think about their own experiences and opinions on the British coast. The soundtrack of the film is a score composed and performed by British Sea Power, a band famed for their live performances.
