meditational art film about the Scottish islands
Paul Hodgson Music Judge
The film focuses on Sandwood bay, a remote, wild beach just south of Cape Wrath. Though now known as a place of unspoilt natural beauty, stories of ghosts and shipwrecks litter the beach's history and linger still in the minds of many. Told through the filmmaker’s personal connection to this place, the film explores these stories, and offers a candid and honest exploration into the human relationship with wild land.
