The first film of the series, devoted to a brief history of shipbuilding, tells in plain and figurative language why heavy metal structures of ships are able to float, what riches are hidden in the depths of the World Ocean, and how modern ships will change beyond recognition in the foreseeable future. This film was first shown to a wide audience at the end of June – its premiere was timed to coincide with Shipbuilder’s Day.
The next film will tell us how the invention of an engine changed the course of human history, help us trace the evolution of power plants and learn how to understand their variants.
Eight films of the project are expected to be released by the end of the year.
