on an unknown beach

A seabed littered in rubble. Emotional damage unearthed under hypnosis. A city in ruins following an earthquake... On An Unknown Beach is a cinematic alchemy of three explorers, each surveying unique landscapes of ruin.

"On an Unknown Beach is an absolute treasure, an uncommon achievement of intuitive genius and one of our country’s great films" - The Pantographic Punch

"On an Unknown Beach is a cosmic journey into the interior of the sea, the city, and the soul." - Film Explorer Switzerland

"It’s dazzling... stone-dead gorgeous; the cinematography is hypnotically good from first to last"  - Metro Magazine
