Join Various Small Fires as Amy Yao shows Allan Sekula and Noel Burch‘s The Forgotten Space at VSF

The Forgotten Space (2012) follows cargo containers aboard ships, barges, trains and trucks, listening to workers, engineers, planners, politicians, and those marginalized by the global transport system. The film visits displaced farmers and villagers in Holland and Belgium, underpaid truck drivers in Los Angeles, seafarers aboard mega-ships shuttling between Asia and Europe, and factory workers in China, whose low wages are the fragile key to the whole puzzle. In Bilbao, The Forgotten Space discovers the most sophisticated expression of the belief that the maritime economy, and the sea itself, is somehow obsolete.
