The Port/Matthew Buckingham: Obscure Moorings
Opening October 2
Matthew Buckingham’s Obscure Moorings is a short film based on the story Daniel Orme, by Herman Melville. It is set in Liverpool, a city that, like Vancouver, is centred around a busy seaport being transformed by the fluctuations of the economy. The film is being shown inside a viewing structure that Buckingham constructed, alongside a collection of modern and historical materials exploring the impact being a port city has on the social fabric of our home.
