Please note

Sorry, we don't have images or video for this item.

The Quayside was the old commercial area in Newcastle. It is now under threat from the redeveloper’s hammer. The film is a poetic lament about its past while indicating fears for its future. Elaborate tracking devices were used in making the film and a soundtrack constructed from files found in old shipping offices.
