Shot on colour 16mm film, Oyster is a minimalist documentary/cinematic poem showcasing the native oyster and various aspects of its life, history and consumption. Shot underwater in its natural habitat, then detailing the process of harvesting in the waters off the Kent coast, Oyster looks to celebrate British aquatic life, as well as the unique history and commercial legacy of the native oyster.
