This film is part of a pilot creative heritage project about the Thames sailing barges called ‘Hulked’.
The film is shot around and within the hulk of the Surrey barge which was left to rot on Glass Bottle Beach in Lower Halstow, Kent UK.
The piece was conceived by Anna Braithwaite who also performed in the film and created the soundtrack, with additional ideas and instrumental performance by Dr. Jeremy Scott (University of Kent).
‘Hulked’ was directed, filmed and edited by Matt Rowe.
The film was informed by the research Anna undertook with project partners Ed Gransden of Tiller & Wheel, Dr. Jeremy Scott (University of Kent) and Prof. Katharine Cockin (University of Essex).
The Hulked project was commissioned by Creative Estuary with support from University of Essex and University of Kent.
