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.

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.

Wet Sand: Voices From L.A.

"Dai Sil Kim-Gibson's 1993 documentary Sa-i-gu stands as one of the crucial texts to offer a Korean American perspective on the events surrouding the [1992] Los Angeles riots ...

Through interviews with a multi-ethnic set of first-hand witnesses, this follow-up probes deeper into the racial and economic issues that not only shaped the climate of 1992 Los Angeles, but continue to affect all Americans today"--Container.
