From the Sea to the Land Beyond, 2012 - ★★★★½

#IlkleyFF with live accompaniment by British Sea Power.

In the beginning I was slightly concerned because the footage didn't seem that interesting and whilst I was enjoying the music it didn't feel like part of the film. However after a few sequences things started to blend together and somehow built into a completely mesmerizing partnership. A brief clip towards the end could have literally been from the first place I worked and this personal connection elevated everything by making me feel part of the 100 year history covered by the film.
