I S O S T A C Y

During the summer of 2021 Tic created music for the short film I S O S T A C Y directed by Simon Clode and Marc Rees for Crowblack Films. The film was narrated by Cerys Matthews.

This artistic short film marks 120 years since Edgar Evans from Rhossili set sail on the Discovery with Captain Scott on his first Antarctic expedition.

The poetic film, voiced by Welsh singer Cerys Matthews, is inspired by their voyage and the current plight of the great white continent. With Antarctica at a perilous tipping point as a result of climate change, the film questions and challenges the detrimental impact of our human actions on the environment” – Crowblack Films website.
