ABOUT THE FILM
Guess what percentage of the goods you consume were transported by sea? It isn’t just the total that is shocking; even the cheapest goods may have traversed the globe repeatedly during manufacture. This engrossing film exposes a world that is deliberately removed from our sight, where the environmental havoc described in last year’s excellent film Sea Blind is just a starter. Freightened explores a complex global web of unregulated power, run by moneymakers unconcerned about high costs to individuals and the world. But there are ways we can take action to ensure that the price is not too high.
