Beyond the North Winds: A Post Nuclear Reverie


24 mins / 2019 / HD + 16mm

Beyond the North Winds is a hybrid documentary about the decommissioning of a nuclear plant in Scotland. Concerned with landscape and time, myth and technology, the film explores the nature of ruins, and asks what environmental scars our generation will leave behind for the future.

"Cubides-Brady’s film has the feel of a folk horror...the 16mm short is visually mesmerising, viewing the nuclear power station as a thing of terror and beauty." The Guardian

    Available to watch on Kinoscope and True Story
