On an Unknown Beach

New Zealand | 2016 | 91 min | English | Adam Luxton, Summer Agnew

A speculative documentary on the landscapes of ruin, and the three explorers who dive deep into the abyss. Aboard the state-of-the-art research vessel Tangaroa, coral scientist Di Tracey surveys the Chatham Rise seabed to document the impact of deep ocean trawl fishing. Wandering through Christchurch’s eerie post-quake CBD, Bruce Russell, a sound artist and founding member of seminal noise band e Dead C, philosophises on urbanisation and regeneration through improvised soundscapes and his own highly evolved thought patterns. And navigating a fraught interior landscape, poet and actor David Hornblow uses Regression Hypnotherapy to traverse his past experiences with addiction.

*Co-director Adam Luxton will attend the Festival in Wellington & Auckland. A Q&A will follow the screenings.
