Deck and Rigging of a Sailing Ship
Visually striking Victorian interest film
Non-Fiction 1900 1 mins
A deckful of scurrying sailors and acres of rigged rope, casting webs of geometric lines across the frame, prove just how visually striking the Victorian ‘interest’ film could be. It also demonstrates early film’s gift to its viewers of privileged glimpses behind the scenes – in this case of a transcontinental sailing ship in all its glory.
