Turbulent WatersDVD - 2004
This film takes the audience below deck to meet the men who toil at the grimy heart of the global economy. Every year over 2,500 seafarers die on the job. Many work in dangerous conditions on ships flying flags of convenience, a common practice whereby companies register vessels in countries with low labour standards and corporate taxes. This documentary exposes the reality of international shipping, while giving voice and dignity to the men who risk their lives to bring us the goods we need.
