We had a first day at the beach today to shoot the scenes that required the boat moored in the background. Leaving the the confines of our interior it was a little difficult at first, having to cope with a blowing wind and the wide open space but soon got into the groove. Lots of splashing around in the waves followed by a grim burial. After lunch we headed back to the port to shoot the amputation scene with Abdel Kadir, one of our outstanding Tunisian actors. Shooting night required the windows to be covered which quickly turned the set into a sauna. By the end of the day everyone was soaked but glowing with their own inner radiance, clean pores clear skin, our own little spa. It was another lovely day on set. Thanks to all for making it rock!
