The Forgotten Space

Loading...
The sea is forgotten until disaster strikes. But perhaps the biggest seagoing disaster is the global supply chain, which - maybe in a more fundamental way than financial speculation - leads the world economy to the abyss. This essayistic, political documentary follows container cargo aboard ships, barges, trains and trucks, listening to workers, engineers, planners, politicians, and those marginalized by the global transport system. We discover the most sophisticated expression of the belief that the maritime economy, and the sea itself, is somehow obsolete.

The Spirits of Forest

Loading...
Sacred groves are social practices, the cultural codes which are embedded through years of practice and ritual. They bring prudence in the use of resources in the long term interest of the communities. Sacred groves are found thoughout the breadth and length of India, though they are known by different names.The purpose of a sacred grove is to manage and protect forests in the name of god. There are no fences or guards here; there is only faith and the community will. But in these days these forests are fast disappearing. If they are to remain two things need to be done--local community control must be strengthened and not weakened in the name of conservation and rebuilding faith in the wealth that forests provides.
