FreeEngineering Plymouth – Public launch
500 years ago the city of Plymouth was a profoundly different place. A small village overlooking a seemingly uneventful ocean, but things were about to change… Join us for the public launch of Engineering Plymouth. Narrated by Dawn French and featuring music by Seth Lakeman, this short film tells the story of how civil engineers have helped to shape Plymouth over the last 500 years and the engineering projects supporting its future. A stunning mix of animation, archive photography and present day cinematography techniques, Engineering Plymouth has been commissioned by the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), South West. 2018 marks the 200th anniversary of ICE, and this film is part of the ICE200 campaign – a year of worldwide events and activities to celebrate this milestone and show how civil engineering has transformed the way we live.
Viewings open to the public from 8pm to 9pm. Free entry, no booking required. The film will also be shown before the screenings of New Town Utopia on 22 and 24 November.
Commissioned by the Institution of Civil Engineers, Created by Wind & Foster, Directed by Jevan Chowdhury, Produced by Miranda Housden, 2018, approx. 15 mins.
