About

Seaside Woman“, Linda McCartney’s 1973 song has been turned into a five-minute animated film by Oscar Grillo in 1980. It depicts a young Jamaican girl and her loving parents who tend the fishing lines in Jamaica. From TVTropes:

The simple story, set in Jamaica, involves a fisherman, his wife, and their little daughter. The “seaside woman” is the mother, who mends her husband’s nets, takes care of their little girl, and makes beads and baskets to sell in the marketplace. The husband catches fish, while the little girl cavorts on the beach and eats the sweet potatoes her mother cooks.

The film won the Short Film Palme d’Or at the 1980 Cannes Film Festival.

"An updated edition of the best-seller. The story of what happened to the band members, their families and friends after the 1970 break-up is brought right up to date. A fascinating and meticulous piece of Beatles scholarship."

We owe a lot to Keith Badman for the creation of those pages, but you really have to buy this book to get all the details - a day to day chronology of what happened to the four Beatles after the break-up and how their stories intertwined together!
