Stranger on The Shore synopsis:
It’s different by the sea. A bit strange even. Just as the coast lies at the ends of England geographically, it’s also at the edges of our society and the margins of our culture - a threshold place where little England meets the wide mysterious world beyond, which has always made it a site of myth, eccentricity, transgression and romance.
Stranger on The Shore is a cycle of short films by Michael Smith & Maxy Neil Bianco.
