THE (incomprehensible) FRUITS OF OUR LABOURS
THE (lost varieties) FRUITS OF OUR IMAGINATION
THE (fermented) FRUITS OF OUR INTOXICATIONS
THE (forgotten) FRUITS OF OUR KNOWLEDGE
Vivienne Bessette & Julia Feyrer will present The Forgotten Space, a film by Noël Burch and Allan Sekula.
The Forgotten Space follows container cargo aboard ships, barges, trains and trucks, listening to workers, engineers, planners, politicians, and those marginalized by the global transport system. We visit displaced farmers and villagers in Holland and Belgium, underpaid truck drivers in Los Angeles, seafarers aboard mega-ships shuttling between Asia and Europe.
A range of materials is used: descriptive documentary, interviews, archive stills and footage, clips from old movies.
Is it possible to imagine the invisible interior space of global economies?
Film will be accompanied by fruit cocktails.
