It is utterly charming and just the right length. The night-time shots with the pier illuminated below are magical.Anthony Wills, National Piers Society

Meticulous editing makes this film glide along as effortlessly as the lift itself, and you’re sorry when it’s over.
The 55 seconds of the title refers to the length of the journey, at Saltburn-on-Sea, on the UK’s oldest water balanced funicular lift, which takes you down to the only remaining pleasure pier in the North East. Enough to celebrate in that, but Jan Cawood’s beautiful short film revels in both the mechanical ballet of the lift and the lives that come together in its short journeys.
