Please join us at the Broom Factory (305 Rideau St) on , June 26th for the launch of our short video, “Belle Park from the Air”, based on 100 years of aerial photographs of Belle Park and Belle Island. These images are not just about the place, they are about the stories and questions they invite. We value your thoughts and want to hear them! 

Wednesday, June 26, 2024 at the Broom Factory, 305 Rideau Street

Snacks and refreshments will be served

From 1924 until the present, Belle Park and Belle Island have been photographed regularly from the air — part of a worldwide practice of geographical documentation for military, climatological, and economic purposes. Belle Park from the Air, a short video by Dorit Naaman, Francine Berish, and Laura Murray, with sound by Matt Rogalsky, shows the changes and continuities of this particular space over a century as the wetland was made into a dump and then a park. Initially, we had mainly informational aims (many of you pored over these images with us!), but we find that what we have created, especially with the soundtrack, has a bit of magic to it and invites response and discussion well beyond the facts. We hope you think so too.

The screening will be followed by comments from the makers of the film and community conversation. We want to know what you see!
