The View is a short poetic film that centres around a bench overlooking the British coastline. During the film we are witness to poignant moments in the lives of the location's fictionalised frequent visitors, who each have a different reason for being there. A poem written for the film carries the narrative through from start to finish.
Short fact: the film was shot at Samphire Hoe in Kent, which is man-made entirely from the material that was dug up to create the Channel Tunnel.
