Open Bridges 2017

2017: Open Bridges Freedom? or Freedom Withheld? 

Open Bridges made history when for the first, and only time, all 13 of the bridges over the River Hull raised, swung or closed simultaneously splitting the city of Hull in two at 20:17 hours on the autumn equinox, 22nd September 2017.  

The award winning Open Bridges film made by Humber Film Creative Community recorded the night when historic vessels sailed down the river and were met by 21st century tugs, to the sound of composer John Stead’s especially commissioned new musique concrète work ‘Moments in Time’.
