Title "Tides of Connection: A Cornwall Waterways Odyssey," Dive into the captivating world of Tides of Connection: A Cornwall Waterways Odyssey, an immersive event that beautifully explores our deep-rooted relationship with the sea and rivers in Cornwall. This mesmerising gathering unites short films from two local film directors, Tristian Herbert and Paul Mulraney, enchanting live music by singer-songwriter Daisy Rickman, and stunning visuals by Ruby Ingleheart. Together, they create an event that celebrates the rich tapestry of Cornwall's aquatic heritage. The event kicks off with a collection of evocative short films, each delving into different aspects of our bond with the sea and rivers. These films explore the resilience of coastal communities as they adapt to environmental changes. The live musicians further enhance the experience with harmonious compositions inspired by the region's maritime history, adding an emotive layer to the event. Featuring "From the Withies," directed by Tristian Herbert, follows the journey of Adrian and Aaron Grigg as they utilize willow to craft eco-friendly lobster and crab pots. Their innovative approach addresses the pressing issue of plastic pollution in fishing gear. Supported by fishermen and weavers, this venture reimagines traditional craftsmanship for a sustainable, modern solution. Another captivating film, "From the Culch," directed by Paul Mulraney, emerged from the offcuts of a lost 1978 BBC documentary about the Truro oyster fishery. After 45 years of obscurity in an airing cupboard, a can of randomly assembled 16mm film was discovered and digitally restored. This poignant story, narrated by 82-year-old Dennis Laity, unveils the world of Carrick Roads and weaves a tale of work, love, and memory from discarded film fragments.
Projections of shimmering waters, marine life, and historical maritime scenes transport guests into the heart of Cornwall's maritime past. "Tides of Connection" is an unmissable event that invites you to explore the intertwined relationship between Cornwall's people and its waters, forging connections that transcend time. Immerse yourself in this sensory journey where the sea and rivers hold the secrets of the past and the promise of the future.
