Stay the Same


STAY THE SAME a film by Sam Firth

images6.jpgThrough 2011 and 2012 Sam Firth filmed herself every day for a year, at exactly the same time, in exactly the same place. The resulting film, completed in September 2013, has been touring film festivals and galleries since.

This website is a record of Sam’s experience during the year long process, responses she collected to the project and other related films and material she found.

You can search the archives or browse by date and type of posting using the pull down links on the left. Or to start from the beginning CLICK HERE.

The film is going to be released online very soon, so follow on wordpress or facebook for updates.

You might also want screening dates, reviews, more info about the film, Sam or the location  . . . . or you can watch a few clips HERE on the BBC.


“Stay the Same, captures Firth’s changing environment over the year  . . .  a striking contrast between the filmmaker’s momentary emotions and the ever present rocks, tides and landscape.” Sight and Sound  

“Out of simplicity comes great complexity – it’s very beautiful,  moving too”  Clio Barnard, director of The Selfish Giant

“A very effecting piece with an accumulative power that creeps up on the viewer.”   Lizzie Franke, British Film Institute

“A hauntingly beautiful meditation on time, solitude and isolation.” Matt Munro, Glasgow Short Film Festival
