"FREIGHTENED" Trailer from Denis Delestrac on Vimeo.

90% of all goods we consume in the West are manufactured in far-off lands and delivered by ship. The cargo shipping industry is a key player in world economy and forms the basis of our very model of modern civilisation; without it, it would be impossible to fulfil the ever-increasing demands of our societies. Yet the workings and regulations of this business remain largely obscure to many, and its hidden costs affect us all. “Freightened” is an audacious investigation about the mechanics and perils of cargo shipping: an all-but-visible industry that relentlessly supplies 7 billion humans and holds the key to our economy, our environment and the very model of our civilization.

However, this is essential as the economy has become a determining element in democratic debate. To understand what is encrypted, to find the signifier in the midst of noise, we have imagined DÉCHIFFRAGE, a collection of large-format economic documentaries accompanied by files online on www.arte.info.
