Last Acre

last-acre

Jacob Cartwright & Nick Jordan have made Last Acre, a short (11 mins) documentary about a ramshackle settle of cabins, huts and sheds that has grown up on the sand dunes along the north west coast of England. Removed from the industrial and recreational that typifies so much of the British coast, this place was created out of necessity – be it a need to have a cheap home to live in, or just to get away from the creeping sprawl of soul-numbing urbanisation. It’s somewhere where those people who really need to “get away from it all” can remove themselves from all the prescribed notions of how to live, and it appeals to me enormously.
