Seaside Special

Running time: 93 mins

Documentary

SEASIDE SPECIAL is an affectionate, up-close look at Britain's last original end-of-the-pier variety show, and how its local heroes are preparing for the 2019 summer season. A tribute to handmade entertainment, with quintessentially English humour. No effects, no celebrities, no digital tricks, but very British, authentic, funny, rousing. At the same time, the film is an Anglophile German's attempt to understand why Britain is tearing itself apart so thoroughly? In the sleepy coastal town of Cromer in Norfolk, we meet a colourful cast of inspiring and original characters and experience a microcosm of modern Britain in the midst of tremendous change. Seaside Special is a German-Belgian co-production, gorgeously shot on 16mm film, with a brass band score by the Fabulous Steve Willaert Brass Band, winner of the Cambridge Film Festival Audience Award and a "Special Mention" at the Hofer Filmtage 2021.
