Synopsis: Between Worlds' is a documentary that follows the first-of-its-kind collaboration of two award-winning artists using two different mediums and two vastly different relationships with time, coming together for the creation of a singular vision. One is renowned for his expansive works of beach art that are lost to the elements shortly after completion, while the other attempts to capture these works in an entirely new way with his own stylistic approach to photography. It is a story that explores art from different perspectives and the challenges of meeting 'Between Worlds' to create something new and original.
