Sea Factory by Pim Zwier
Sea Factory

Sea Factory

Since part of the Baltic fleet moved away most of Kronstadt is no longer a closed military city. With the renewed cathedral as the centrepiece, the city revises its own destination to fill the void that was left behind. The photographic process of colour separation used in the film emphasises the city's current state between past and future: the heroic turbulent history,changing of ideologies, and growing tourism. 'Sea Factory' is the second film in a series of works inspired by the photography of Sergey Prokudin-Gorskii and was created during the NCCA artist in residence in Kronstadt.
