Synopsis: Sebastian Beach: One Fine Day is an original film that evokes a sense of having been made by two people that stumbled upon a movie camera in the wilderness and are discovering what it’s for. Narrated by the original music of the filmmakers, it’s a chronicle of the mundane, laced (as it is in everyday life) with the miraculous.
The soundtrack was written and composed by Award Winning Songwriter Billy Yeager who wrote the songs inside a beach shack that was built by the filmmakers and is featured in the film,
The wonderful thing about this creative product of the combined wills and imaginations of Anais and Billy Yeager is how profoundly it succeeds in quietly crystalizing an alternative reality in the here and now.Their language of innocent play underpinned with a dystopian despair – a sustained dialogue between the sensual pleasures of simple existence and the sense of aimlessness and utter loss that naturally grow out of what George Gurdjieff called “the terror of our situation” – evokes a mood of homelessness tinged with a sweet optimism reminiscent of the 1960s.
This is creating nostalgia in the present, bringing a feeling of remembering to the moment, making something out of nothing. And such, these two make me realize, is life.
