Screening of ‘The Forgotten Space’, a film essay by Allan Sekula & Noël Burch (2010)
‘Our film is about globalization and the sea, the “forgotten space” of our modernity.’
Combining descriptive documentary, interviews, archive stills and footage, 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.
This documentary is based on Allan Sekula’s Fish Story, a larger project including an exhibition and a book, where Sekula’s artistic commitment to labour’s cause through ‘critical realism’ reach its most complex and interesting articulation.
Admission free, all welcome.
