Celluloid Sail

“This is an adventure”

This summer, the magical ship Kaskelot will be moored on Bristol’s Harbourside; its sails alight with colour and projection. Join us for a unique two day film, archive and circus experience.

The first day of Celluloid Sail is a free archive experience. On this day, audiences who visit the Kaskelot can climb aboard and explore secret spaces below deck and discover footage of Great British beach holidays, experimental coastal films from the archives and view footage through specially constructed binoculars. As night falls, this experience extends into the evening as light and projection animates the ship’s sails with stories of your harbour’s past. Entry aboard is between 14.00 – 21.00; space onboard is limited so entry may be staggered. For a real spectacle arrive after sunset to view ship-sail projection from the shore from 21:00 – 23:00.

On the second evening, the vessel will then be transformed into an expanded cinema for an outdoor screening of Wes Anderson’s cult-classic, The Life Aquatic. Before the film starts, audiences sat on the water’s edge will be treated to an archive film infused live circus performance on the ship’s rigging. Ticket holders for this special event will be offered the opportunity to experience the on board archive at allocated times before the show.

Don your wetsuits and sailor hats, Bristol and get ready for a cinematic adventure!
