Between Land and Sea + Director Q&A
Dir: Ross Whitaker
Ireland / 2017 / 90mins
The immense beauty of Ireland’s west coast forms the striking backdrop to this portrait of seaside surf town Lahinch. Boasting one of Europe’s best big-wave breaks, the town is gradually becoming a destination for serious surfers as well as tourists keen to learn. Between Land and Sea follows a year in the life of the surfing community here, showing not just the weeks when the town comes to life with visitors, but the unexpected bad weather which sends them away again, and the off-season, when the surf-school and board shop owners hunker down for the winter.
Stunningly shot and filmed with deep affection for the town, Ross Whitaker’s uplifting portrait of the people of Lahinch is testament to the awesome draw of the surf.
The screening on Thur 29th March will be followed by a Q&A with the film's director Ross Whitaker.
Between Land and Sea screens daily at Dochouse from Friday 30th.
