This epic essay film journeys around the world, to the ports of Rotterdam, Los Angeles, Hong Kong and Bilbao, to construct a panoramic portrait of the prevailing global economy. In the film, as the camera follows container cargo aboard ships, barges, trains and trucks, we listen to workers, engineers, planners, politicians, people on the margins of global trade, and to the voice of artist Allan Sekula, who—with the help of collaborator Noël Burch—tells their story. This politically astute, partisan commentary is considered a masterpiece of nonfiction.
