The Forgotten Space

Thursday, 9th May 2013, 00:00 to 00:00


An astounding film, which starts off as investigative documentary but becomes a mythopoeic essay on modernity and the sea.

As the directors, artist and writer Allan Sekula and film theorist and filmmaker Noel Burch put it, ‘our premise is that the sea remains the crucial space of globalisation. Nowhere else is the disorientation, violence, and alienation of contemporary capitalism more manifest.’

Allan Sekula and Noel Burch, USA, 2010, 112 mins
