Director Statement

Oceans Away is an ipoem, shot on an iphone with an anamorphic lens and no budget. It is between a narrative and a poetic odyssey of loss and ageing. A film inspired by and shot against the backdrop of the ever changing and wild Brittany Coast, we explore loneliness, mysticism, mourning, and desire.
