“Love and Loss”

This film from Sidmouth Coastal Community Hub’s “Working the Sea” is a sensitive telling of passion for the sea and the painful loss of a loved one – a universal story of fishers. This film was created by Butterfly Effect Films for BBC Inside Out South West and is dedicated to Ian Bagwell.
