I was really surprised by this film. I have no interest in ships or shipbuilding, but the visuals caught my attention immediately. The photography is dynamic, even poetic, as the camera explores a major shipyard in Scotland. The film documents the process of creating a large sea vessel in the twentieth century. Iain Hamilton's score is excellent.
I came across this film by accident. It was part of a VHS tape compilation of John Grierson's work. Sadly, the print they started with was not in good shape and the color is badly faded. I have no idea if it's available on DVD.
