One Grain of Sand

One Grain of Sand was filmed over a single Autumn & Winter and is a short portrait of lone climbing and walking in the Dark Peak of the Derbyshire moorlands.

This area of Peak District is best known for its high desolate peat moors and barren gritstone edges, offering possibly the only true wilderness experience in this part of England. Beneath the edges of Kinder Scout and Bleaklow, steep-sided cloughs are also home to relict oak-birch woodlands and streams that ascend to the quietude of the plateau.

The film features a well-worn red jumper and is accompanied by a gallery of illustrations by artist Caitlin Line.

To see a world in a grain of sand,

And heaven in a wild flower,

Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,

And eternity for an hour.

William Blake
