Girt By Sea

Girt By Sea

 

Girt By Sea is a documentary project, directed by Shane McNeil that presents a lyrical interpretation of Australian’s relationship to the coast – in work, in play and beyond. The National Film and Sound Archive and ABC Archives have opened their vaults to reveal the richness and variety of stories and lives on Australia’s vast seaboard. The archival footage is accompanied by a newly commissioned soundtrack composed by award-winning Australian band, The Panics.
