Synopsis

Life’s a Beach is about a real life struggle, raising political and environmental questions over ownership and sustainability, but also full of charm and stunning visuals.

A documentary exploring the life of Jerry ‘Mungo’ Francis, as he takes a stand against consumerist society, finding himself embroiled in legal battles against local government and Network Rail, after he set up home on a Folkestone beach. Mungo’s home, built out of old pallets and recycled beach refuse, represented not only his philosophies of sustainability, but also the heart of the local community. ‘Life’s a Beach’, follows Mungo’s experiences there; his challenges and triumphs, all leading to a tragic accident, which made the man a local legend.

The film offers insight into the experiences of a man who made waves, by going against the tide. https://www.facebook.com/Lifesabeachfilm
