Please join us to watch a Nature Of Shipyard documentary film by Roman Sebastyanski, which closely relates to topics of Memory of Water and its latest artists residency in Gdansk - those being post-industrial waterfront heritage in the context of community development and urban planning.
''Gdansk Shipyard. The world-famous place of birth and victory of Solidarity. Place of construction of modern ships and a source of prosperity of Gdańsk for almost 150 years. For large machines and small people, always full, consciously planted trees, bushes and flowers.
After the fall in 1996, the Cradle of Solidarity was bought by two American investment funds. The process of its transformation into a waterfront business center began in 2006 with the liquidation of witnesses to historic events: historic buildings, cranes and other equipment, as well as many old trees.
"Nature of Shipyard " shows a short, several-year suspension period, between the former, wonderful past, bathed in lush greenery, and the potential forthcoming transformation into an urban new creation, in which people-machines will race in the concrete jungle of shiny skyscrapers.
The final scene of the film is a warning about such a future of this important, historic place and at the same time a suggestion not to forget about the Green Nature in the forthcoming urban developments.''
This film was made by Roman Sebastyanski in 2017.
Roman Sebastyanski has worked with River//Cities Platform or it's Members in creation of some of the project's LABs/workshops connected to waterfront heritage and urban planing.
