About Global Harbors Documentary

“Global Harbors: A Waterfront Renaissance” is a 60-minute documentary about an international phenomenon. It's the story of how the redevelopment of the Inner Harbor in downtown Baltimore transformed an abandoned, blighted waterfront into a world-renowned cultural and entertainment destination, becoming a model for other cities across the U.S. and around the World.

This riveting tale is told by journalist turned urban planner Martin Millspaugh and first person accounts from other community leaders who accomplished what was once considered nearly impossible.

Global Harbors was shot in high definition in Baltimore Maryland, Sydney Australia, Rotterdam in the Netherlands, Long Beach California and Norfolk Virginia. Produced by award winning journalists Cari Stein and Kim Skeen of Ivy Media and narrated by native Baltimorean and Hollywood actor/ film director Charles S. Dutton, Global Harbors: A Waterfront Revitalization traces the astonishing transformation of a declining, old, rust-belt city into a waterfront metropolis that inspired the world.

Maryland Public Television partnered in the project with production support and guidance. Global Harbors is a production of Global Harbors Documentary, Inc., a non-profit, 501( c)(3) corporation based in Baltimore, MD.
