World Without End (No Reported Incidents)

A film by Jem Cohen | 2016 | 57 minutes

Quite close to London, but for many, a million miles away, Southend-on-Sea is a town along the Thames estuary. WORLD WITHOUT END (NO REPORTED INCIDENTS), the new documentary from Jem Cohen (MUSEUM HOURS, COUNTING) is a portrait of this place – everyday streets, everyday birds, unflagging tides, mud, and sky. But it is also about humanity and history, about prize-winning Indian curries, an encyclopedic universe of hats, and a nearly lost world of proto-punk music.


“A series of filmed epiphanies — shots of commonplace objects, scenes, and people caught at just the right moment and in just the right light to be revelatory.”
– Boston Globe
