Soundtrack to 'The Shipping News From Languard Point', a short film by James Fraser.
"Landguard Point, Suffolk, is situated on a piece of jutting land which creates a natural harbour for Felixstowe; Britain’s largest and busiest container port. This peninsula affords an ideal vantage point from which to observe the perpetual flow of gargantuan, fully laden ships as they make their way to and from the docks, exposing a daily spectacle of the commodity on the move.
"Shot in black and white and in a semi-documentary style, this film aims to depict a very specific location, and sense of geographical space, whereby a functional, industrial landscape entwines with coastal intrigue. The short film is centred around a study of Dean Cable, an amateur photographer, filmmaker and expert in the field of local shipping and the workings of the port of Felixstowe. The shipping container becomes a ‘motif’ looming always in the background.
"My strategy here is to attempt to show a very human, emotional angle over a shared fascination and hypnotic bewilderment whilst viewing cargo movement from the vantage point of wind-swept shore."

This is gorgeous and 100% setting the tone for my autumn...
Reminds me of albums I loved in the early aughts like His Name is Alive's Stars on E.S.P. and Black Box Recorder's England Made Me, both of which remind me of long autumnal road trips in Wisconsin as a teenager. Definitely a beautiful and reflective space to be encompassed by while watching the world shift.
THE PAIN GOES...
