The Shadow Line

A young sea captain’s first command brings with it a succession of crises. Some of the crew are sick, the first mate is deranged, the sea is far too calm – and out here the sea is the only world that counts.

A vibrant, dark sea yarn, based on the short story by Joseph Conrad, written by Joe Jamieson & directed by Maria Karazanou with sound design by Robin Cunningham.
