‘Working the Sea’ follows the fortunes of the Bagwells, a Sidmouth fishing family from the forties when young Stan was fishing with his father in a borrowed boat, to the nineties when they have two fish shops, two trawlers fishing out of Brixham, and three boats working off the beach at Sidmouth. Then, tragedy strikes and the women of the family pick up the pieces. The film also weaves the contemporary users of the coast, from the sailing club to the lifeboat, into the narrative. So this is ultimately a film about community spirit and how a mutual love of and respect for the sea draws people together. ‘This stunning film: fascinating and inspiring, funny and humbling is a powerful reminder how lucky we are on the coast’. Louise Cole Director Sidmouth Coastal Community Hub CIC
