Screening of ‘Welcome to Plymouth’ by artist Katy Richardson

This film pairs new and found footage to poetically and critically examine Plymouth as a built environment. It does not track smoothly past the state of the art university facilities, or fly you over Smeaton’s tower on a sunny day. This is the other city: the low-income city, insular and geographically disconnected; the city where the UK’s nuclear submarines are refuelled and refurbished. This is the overwhelmingly white city, a post-Brexit port city, in late capitalism. This is a city which has a lot to learn about welcoming people.

Katy Richardson is an artist based in Plymouth, UK and this film was commissioned as a response to the Encounters She/Her film programme produced in Summer 2021.
