Gritty

Australia, 1991 (MIFF 1991, Super 8)

Director: Maeve Woods

When seen on screen this beach becomes something like lunar beach, yet film heightens the intensity of all the beach's separate sensations. The calm water has an even more unctious surface, the sun's glare throws up darker, more velvety shadows, and the grit is grittier.
