An emotional, magical depiction of the frailty of existence, the transience of our lives and the speed at which the juggernaut of time races by. A journey through ourselves, a path laid out before our very eyes on a cold, desolate, wintry beach.

Historia is the dramatisation of a simple yet extremely moving moment in my life. Sat one wintry day on a windswept beach contemplating (or escaping) from the world, a strange, almost otherwordly depiction of the frailty of existence was gently laid out across the beach before me. The unquestioning love and dependence of childhood, the self exploration, and fiery independence of youth, the comfort, security and companionship of middle-age and the ultimate tragedy of seperation and loss. Four steps of life. Steps that make history.
I swore that I would one day return and document this precious moment believing that filming it would in some way make concrete a paramount realisation in my life - that "time and tide wait for no man". The result is this film - Historia.
