“the most sobering and farsighted film I’ve yet come across on the deleterious effects of globalisation on both individuals and nation states”, Kieron Corless, Sight and Sound
The Forgotten Space follows container cargo aboard ships, barges, trains and trucks, listening to the people working in and affected by the global transport system. We hear from displaced farmers and villagers, underpaid truck drivers, seafarers aboard mega-ships, and factory workers in China whose low wages are the fragile key to the whole puzzle.
“I learned a lot more from The Forgotten Space than I did from any other feature that I saw last year” Jonathan Rosenbaum
