The Sensational Silver City

Lucie Treacher, Graeme Roger
2022 - 16 mins

Ethereal film and sound work inspired by famous escapologist Harry Houdini who was tossed into Aberdeen harbour.

During a storm in 1909, a crowd gathered to witness Houdini, handcuffed and chained, dropped into the sea from the deck of a tugboat into the Aberdeen harbour. There was a high level of drama as Houdini spent a minute and a half in the murky depths before resurfacing and coming ashore.

Inspired by this historic event, members of the North-east community were filmed underwater and suspended in time by Moray artist Graeme Roger. Composer Lucie Treacher, who grew up in Sutherland, designed the film’s soundscape which features the voices of two Aberdeen choir groups.
