Capital Celluloid 2013 - Day 18: Fri Jan 18

From The Sea to the Land Beyond (Woolcock, 2013):
Rough Trade East, Old Truman Brewery, Dray Walk, 91 Brick Lane, 6.30pm FREE

Here's the introduction to what looks  a pretty special evening: To launch the DVD release of From the Sea to the Land Beyond, which features music by British Sea Power, Caught by the River and the BFI invite you to a special screening of the film introduced by its award-winning director Penny Woolcock, who will take part in a Q&A afterwards, hosted by Luke Turner, Associate Editor of The Quietus.com.

This fascinating and moving lyrical portrait of Britain's coastline is created through an exquisitely beautiful combination of evocative archive footage from the BFI National Archive and stirring music. British Sea Power set the course for this cinematic voyage with an original score that ebbs and flows with the natural sounds of seagulls, ships and just the occasional snippet of speech. Uplifting and inspirational, From the Sea to the Land Beyond is released on BFI DVD on 21 January 2013 but we will have copies on sale at this launch event at a specially reduced price.
