Project Synopsis
This is Producer Joaquin Cardoner and David Findlay's newest collaboration after their previous films have been featured at TIFF, VIFF and Sundance: www.davidwfindlay.com Captured on 35mm and IMAX 70mm film, ‘Lay Me by the Shore’ follows a week in the life of Noah, a 16 year old high school senior in his final days of school as he comes to terms with his best friend’s recent passing. Exploring the raw, potent emotions of youth through the prism of grief, the film lends an empathetic eye on a young person’s very immediate but suppressed emotions. Drenched in the warm light of long June days and with the intimidating spectre of an uncertain future looming, the tale is told from the perspective of the recently deceased — an omniscient and benevolent presence.
