The Strange and the Familiar: Seaside Super8

LOCATION: Hastings, East Sussex

FILM: Featuring the work of Mark French, Richard Heslop, Kate Adams, Nick Pilton, Nichola Bruce, Rebecca Marshall, Sam Sharples and Andrew Kotting

Made by Hastings Film Makers for the Coastal Currents project, inspired by the theme of STRANGE/FAMILIAR, this collaboration takes in everything from the Jack-in-the-Green festival, to life on a working fishing beach, to seaside memories on film, to incarnations of the straw bear. Multiple perspectives shot through a subjective haze. Oddball angles on the notion of place. Nostalgia for the present.
