It has been a month since Stephen jumped. Amy collects her husband’s effects, the things he had with him gathered in a single box. There was no sign – no warning of what he would do. As fractured memories of their last night together rewind, replay and unravel, she is desperate to find out why.
Joe and Matt are making a documentary. Whilst reviewing their footage they make a startling discovery that takes their film in an unexpected direction – the blurred image of a man jumping from the cliffs. Beachy Head is a powerful look at the ripple effects of one man’s decision to take his life.
‘A quietly splendid production, magically well staged; it lingers long’ -The Observer
‘Beachy Head treats its sombre core themes – mortality, grief and artistic responsibility – with a clever, caring and occasionally humorous theatrical intelligence. Well-researched and simply but fluidly staged, it is a skilful blend of text of technology. Analogue’s desire to probe the painful, mysterious emotions behind clinical facts is honourable.’ – Donald Hutera, The Times
