Jennifer Cutting YouTube Clip

So you know how I'm always going on about Jennifer Cutting's Ocean Orchestra? Well, now you can listen to "My Grief on the Sea" because the director of a movie that uses the song has made a video with clips to market the movie. Here! (I have no idea what the movie is about, only that it's called Ithaca and is about a sailor and his lover, so there are tall ships and period costumes.) Jennifer wrote the song; the singer is wonderful DC local singer Grace Griffith.

ETA: Looked up the movie. "Directed by Harvard filmmaker Michael Van Devere, Ithaca is set on Christmas Eve, 1870. Captain Bower is at sea, and his wife waits patiently at home for his return. When word arrives that the Captain has drowned in a shipwreck, a cousin and two lodgers in the house compete for her hand. Unable to decide, Emily seeks help from the ghost of her departed husband. Ithaca was filmed at the Longfellow National Historic Site in Cambridge, MA. Van Devere, a former intern with the famous production team of Ismail Merchant and James Ivory, uses period costumes and historic settings similar to those in Merchant/Ivory films."
