SILVERTOWN (2018) | Short film

Silvertown (2018) is a hypnotic journey through the drastically changing landscapes of the London docklands. Using the idea of a dock as a floating axis, the film embarks on a psycho-geographical exploration of both under and over-ground terrains. The camera intimately searches for meaning: Lexical forms of representation found in traces of materials and human history. But very few words are indeed spoken and the objects, materials and people seem to live a silenced existence. The docks were formed by the hands of migrant labourers, they became centres of commerce and were later abandoned. They became the sites of airports, exchanges of a vertical axis from the depths of the underground.

Silvertown is an audio-visual collaboration between filmmaker Katya Lachowicz and sound artist Clelia Patrono.
