Film Night: The Making of Eden

British filmmaker Robin Kewell introduces the first of a series of short films that will be screened at Titirangi Theatre and Lopdell House's Top Floor.

Lopdell House Gallery is proud to host the first public showing of The Making of Eden, which is an insider's view of the how the Eden Project in Cornwall, England came about. Robin started filming the Eden Project in 1998 and is still documenting events there. Out of over 4000 hours of filmed footage this presentation shows how a derelict clay pit was transformed from a 60m deep hole into a 'Garden of Eden'. Robin will also give a short talk about the film.
