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.

Les Hommes du Port: Une Ville à Chandigarh

Loading...
In Les hommes du port, Alain Tanner returns to the port city of Genoa where he had worked for a shipping company 40 years before. He shows the world of the dockworker, a trade that has changed through the years as a result of recessions and modernization. Although Genoa is still beautiful, the port is dying as it reflects the economic and social climate in Italy. In Une ville à Chandigarh, Tanner documents the planning of Chandigarh, the modern city that Le Corbusier created in the early 1950s at the foothills of the Himalayas in India. This planned community, with its large residential complexes, university and municipal buildings, is contrasted against life in the impoverished villages that surround it.

Lost Rivers

Loading...
"Nearly every major city was built near the convergence of many rivers. As cities grew with the Industrial Revolution, these rivers became conduits for disease and pollution. The 19th-century solution was to bury them underground and merge them with the sewer systems. These rivers still run through today's metropolises, but they do so out of sight. [This film] examines hidden waterways in cities around the world and introduces us to people dedicated to exploring and exposing them."--Container.

Commedia Dell' Arte: The Story, the Style

Viewers will discover the history of Italian masked theater, the origins of commedia dell' arte and its various iterations, and the nature of its performers' improvised style. The program explains how the tradition's inspired characters - Pantalone, Colombina, Pulchinella, and many others - evolved and rose to prominence in the hearts and minds of 16th, 17th, and 18th-century audiences. It also illustrates how Italian masked troupes influenced countless other cultures as they performed across Europe, thus shaping the theatrical sensibility of western society as a whole."--Container.
