Once again we welcome Jan Faull from the BFI who brings a curated selection of old film, this time Tales from the Shipyard. Those who came last year to her collection King Coal will have enjoyed local film from Cumbria amnd the North West. Tales from the Shipyard is the second in the BFI collection This Working Life a three-part celebration of Britain's industrial heritage as seen through the eyes of filmmakers from the Victorian era to the present day. The remaining part which will be compiled for next year by the BFI will be on the steel industry
Barrow-In-Furness shipbuilders Vickers are featured adding local interest. Paul Rotha’s modernist classic Shipyard (1935, 24min) filmed at Barrow in Furness, captures the building of a liner with the eye of a painter. A rare opportunity that should not be missed.
Thanks to BFI
