Heralded as "a celebration of life like you've never seen," Somewhere With No Bridges is a stirring, lyrical journey beneath the brusque, reticent surface of a New England fishing community.

Twenty years after a beloved local fisherman, Richie Madeiras, goes missing off the shores of Martha's Vineyard, a distant cousin locates Richie's kind, indelible spirit in the stories of family, friends, and the sweeping sea which has defined their lives.
"Told with the reverence and grace of
Terrence Malick’s Tree of Life."

"Named a BEST DOCUMENTARY of 2021!
Charles Frank uses the specificity of this taciturn New England fishing community to craft a universal reflection on grief, memory, and time. His stunning film finds as much beauty in silence as the patient and moving voice-over narration. Hypnotic and truly inimitable, Somewhere With No Bridges is a meditative paean for a soul that once touched the earth but lives on in the salty sea air."

"A celebration of life like you’ve never seen."

"It’s very likely that Charles Frank's remarkable and deeply felt poetic documentary is one of the best memorial films you’ll ever see. The film is something of a master-class in picture and sound editing, giving us beautiful artistic sequences, wonderfully scored, cut with gorgeous scenes of the island’s ocean and coasts, as well as intimate portraits."
