Forgotten Space, The
THE FORGOTTEN SPACE seeks to understand and describe the contemporary maritime world in relation to the complex symbolic legacy of the sea. The film follows the container transport aboard ships, barges, trains and trucks, listening to workers, engineers, politicians and those marginalised by the global transport system.
The filmmakers state: Our premise is that the sea remains the crucial space of globalization. Nowhere else is the disorientation, violence, and alienation of contemporary capitalism more manifest, but this truth is not self-evident, and must be approached as a puzzle, or mystery, a problem to be solved.
