This film, commissioned by the national tourist office, used to be shown together with Resnais' Hiroshima and won an award at the tourist film festival in Brussels. From Coast To Coast is a piece about the essence of tourism, a film essay asking why the Riviera is so popular with so many people. Although the author's reflections revolve around the idea of the eternal search for paradise, she is very much aware of its artificiality and therefore presents these particular attributes in her film.
