(Erik Hammen, United States, 2015, DCP, 73 min)
Filmmaker Erik Hammen in attendance!
Inspired more by films like People on Sunday (1930) than Frankie and Annette, Beach Town is a rock and roll beach movie of the mind – a quiet, unabashedly atmospheric look at the lives of young people whose art is ineffably linked with their surroundings in a low-rent coastal community. Beach Town features an upbeat summertime soundtrack and was shot entirely in Seattle in glorious, Super 16 color film.
