Experience The Sound

For more than 100 years, from the early days of black and white silent film to sound, colour and now 360 degrees, moving images have recorded Plymouth’s relationship with the ocean.

With support from the British Film Institute Audience Fund and National Lottery, Real Ideas and The Box have partnered to re-imagine rarely seen moving image and paper materials from the South West Film and Television Archive into a stunning fulldome film that explores Plymouth’s strong connection to The Sound.

There will be event photography taking place and an opportunity to give feedback after you’ve seen the film. Everyone is welcome to attend however the film may be more suited to adults.

This project is supported by the BFI Audience Fund awarding funds from the National Lottery.

Total running time: Approx 35 mins
