“The Sea Reminds Me”
Director: Ray Jacobs / Jonathan Tritton Key Cast: Mervyn Bradley / Colin Mclean
Writers: Ray Jacobs / Mervyn Bradley / Jonathan Tritton Producer: Ray Jacobs (United Kingdom)
Mark is numbed by the loss of his father; the blank pages of a photo album stir his memories.
‘The Sea Reminds Me’ is about Mark, a learning disabled man who cannot come to terms with his father’s death. He is truly all at sea. Mark’s yearning for real touch and connection urge him to a Welsh seaside town, a place haunted with childhood memories. Mark’s adventure travels through landscape, imagination and memory. The film takes us to a place where both the real and imagined worlds live side by side and reminds us that sometimes we have to travel through both to move through a crisis.
