Panama Canal: a transit in timelapse

5 minutes

A quick boat trip from the Pacific to the Atlantic, by way of Central America

The Panama Canal covers 48 miles of waterway linking the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. When the canal opened in 1914, ships no longer had to round the fabled and dangerous Cape Horn at the southern tip of the Americas. Using sequential photography from 10 different cameras, Michael Mariant’s film follows one such ship on a 8 hour journey through the canal, in only 5 minutes.
