From the Sea to the Land Beyond is a film about the British coast made from 100 years of our film heritage stored in the British Film Institute collection. Director Penny Woolcock stitches together the story of Britain's relationship with the sea and the coast using footage from the BFI National Archive, some going back to the very beginnings of film. The film examines industry, such as fishing and shipbuilding; war, with footage of soldiers on their way to the western front and Luftwaffe attacks; seaside leisure, Edwardian and current; nature and man'€™s relationship with it. British Sea Power'€™s acclaimed soundtrack runs the length of the film.
