From the 27th of July to the 12th of August 2012, Sailing Out Of Grain was exhibited as part of the B-Side Festival in Weymouth and then Portsmouth. The Festival was a great success and we thought we’d share with you some of the nice things people said about Sailing Out Of Grain and the film programme in general. (For info about the other films shown alongside Sailing Out Of Grain see B-Side’s website)
You can read some of the comments from the Festival’s Film Visitor Book below.
Thank you to all of those who came down to see and support the exhibition! We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!
Film Programme Visitor Comments
Beautiful, thought-provoking films. The use of the 3 screens enriches the sensations and narrative in a really cool way. Loved the ‘sailing out of Grain’ film because of her choice to experience the elements first hand ! Thankyou Katy for telling me about b-side !
Great ! From Oscar
Great ! From Florie
A wide mix, which explores many issues and avenues. Both delightful and thought- provoking. Work of great value !
Very inspirational film of the quadriplegic sailor. Also an eye opener to reality and poverty that’s around the world and its troubles today.
Unusual films. Food for thought.
Very interesting, ran out of time, will be back !!
Interesting – all 3 !
Sailing out of Grain – what an inspiring film – achievement of freedom against the odds.
Aqua – spoiled by duff acting. Sailing out of Grain – beautiful and great use of the wide screen. Closer to the wind – wonderful soundscape, didn’t need the old boy talking. Promised Land – stunning piece of work, great photography and moving story.
Sailing out of Grain was quite superb. The slow build up to getting on the water really put one into the character of the woman. Mind altering. Other films also good – will return to see longer film another time.
Very thought provoking films. A great way to bring different issues to a wider audience.
Well made interesting films. Good venue.
Just tells a story, from a very human side. Lovely lovely film.
I hope these films will be shown in schools/collages – also the disabled sailor film should be shown on TV before the Paralympics.
An inspirational short film that should push us all to try a bit harder. Thank you.
Aqua – weak acting and dull. Powerful telling of disabled woman, beautiful. Pelican beautifully constructed images.
Fantastic inspiration and brilliant photographic presentation from all sides – thank you.
Great to be in Weymouth – what an advert for the UK – arts and athletics, great mix. Many thanks.
Great, well curated programmed – well done !
Really fascinating to see the ‘sea’ and water in different ways.
Very unusual and interesting excellent filming.
Sorry its not on for longer or during Paralympics in Sept 2012.
Very thought provoking, sad and visually impressive. Thank you. Very worthwhile and powerful – excellent. Great – we need more events like this.
