We were part of the strand 'Building a Fort' together with other films embracing the many possibilities of play, experimentation, beautiful accidents and fruitful mistakes. As a straight8 film - filling one super8 cassette and editing in-camera - it requires both planning and contentment to let go and accept the wanky wonky witty being of analogue film and nature.
Alchemy's programmer Jonathan Ali writes about 'Searching for Shore':
Finally, in Regina Mosch’s symbolist Searching for Shore, we return to the Scottish coast and another in-camera celluloid experiment, one that finds unexpected poetry in a Jenga enthusiast attempts to keep an addiction at bay. Play on.
