Beam Reach Blasting

BEAM REACH BLASTING (2018) is the result of an artistic collaboration between filmmaker Cecilia Stenbom and musician Chris Sharkey resulting in an experimental documentary, an audio-visual poem about a journey made possible by wind propulsion only.

The film chronicles life aboard the Oosterschelde, a three-masted schooner, among crew and trainees on a 500 nautical mile sail across the North Sea. Capturing the sea and its changing sailing conditions as well as the everyday activities on the ship: physical work and downtime, social interaction and solitude, nocturnal and daytime life.
