Zephyros



Experimental Moving Image 22 minutes 15 seconds

On the 26th February 1947 the steamship SS Zephyros (formerly Dunedin) ran aground on the rocks of Brown's Bay after losing its anchor in a storm.

Its skeleton now appears on the lowest of tides as a fossil amongst the reef. This film investigates this fossil with the ever present backdrop of newer younger shipping vessels awaiting to enter the Port of Tyne.

The soundtrack of the film consists of on site recordings and animprovised performance made with the wreck on the 30/06/21.
