First Light Festival takes place over 24 hours, on the summer solstice weekend, in the most easterly point of the UK. The sun rises over the sea here first and the films in this programme have been chosen for their tidal or temporal themes. Here the passage of time can be distorted and separated from the inevitability of gravitational forces. Films include:

SEVEN

Seven occupies the liminal space where wilderness and culture, tradition and modernity collide. The film unfolds in a surreal and stunning Arctic landscape of rearing cliffs and vast seascapes at the edge of civilisation.  Written and Directed by James Morgan.  Dur: 12.00

IN WONDERLAND

The story of a life together. It begins and ends in the same place and time – on a beach where Alice has come to reflect on her relationship with Michael. It’s both the story of that one moment and the story of their whole relationship, seen through the shifting sands of Alice’s memory.  Directed by Christopher Hayden.  Screenplay by Iona Firouzabadi.  Dur:10.00

THE OLD WOMAN AND THE SEA

Written and Directed by Esme Hicks.  Dur: 10.43

LATE AFTERNOON

Emily finds herself disconnected from the world around her. She drifts back through her memories to relive different moments from her life. Looking to her past helps her to fully understand the present.  Directed by Louise Bagnell.  Dur: 9.23

TAKING THE WATERS

A sumptuous documentary about people trying to change their lives for the better through the restorative powers of the Walpole Bay Tidal Pool. Directed by Kathryn Ferguson and Anna Hart.  Dur: 18.00
