Factories and furnaces. Piers and pavilions. Seaports and remote Scottish isles. Fishing villages and fairs. Made from over 100 years of BFI archive footage, award-winning director Penny Woolcock's film is a portrait of our unique coastline and the role it plays in our lives - during wartime, on our holidays and as a hive of activity during the industrial age. British Sea Power will captain this cinematic voyage with their first ever performance of an original composition of score rich in the imagination, epic power and range of which they are renowned. As a part of this innovative project we give you the opportunity to make you own video postcard using incredible clips of the BFI footage and music samples from the quite brilliant British Sea Power – www.sheffdocfest.com/view/thespace Commissioned by The Space, the new on-demand digital arts service developed by the Arts Council in partnership with the BBC and produced by Sheffield Doc/Fest and Crossover.
