This is The Northland

Directed by Just Trek
Year: 2018
Type: Trailer

This is the Northland’ is a personal, evocative and original documentary project, shedding a light on a remarkably atmospheric location on the Northwestern coast of Scotland.

The film focuses on Sandwood bay, a remote, wild beach just south of Cape Wrath. Though now known as a place of unspoilt natural beauty, stories of ghosts and shipwrecks litter the beach's history and linger still in the minds of many.

Told through the director Ted Simpson's personal connection to this place, the short film explores these stories, and offers a candid and honest exploration into the human relationship with wild land.
