In a series of lyrical portraits, The Long Coast illuminates the stories of Maine’s seafolk, those whose lives and livelihoods are inextricably connected to the ocean. This atmospheric film shows the beauty , intimacy and uncertainty that coastal dwellers face in rooting their lives in the ocean, particularly as human actions- from overfishing, to aquaculture, to warming seas – confront Maine and its people with profound change.

Divided into three parts, Cold Stack charts the melancholic decline of the oil rig industry in the Scottish Highlands. The film uncovers the destructive effects of the collapse on those who were employed by the industry, and showcases the grand visual spectacle of the dereliction of the rigs in the Cromarty Firth.
Thanks to Frank Martin.
