Event details

C Shells

The C shells have been a feature of the Suffolk coast for a few years, but for most of that time under a different name, “The Shell Line”. I bumped into them originally in 2012 but didn’t learn the story for another two years. I have had a strained relationship with cancer since my father died when I was 13 so the discovery of the line and its story lit a fire in me that  led unstoppably  to the creation of  the film “C shells." The deep friendship, the extraordinary coincidence, the unexpected creation of something Lida and Els refuse to call a work of art, all of it was a story screaming to be told. Their conversation is frank and insightful. The medium of film allows the consequence of their work to be seen in a unique way.
