All That Perishes At The Edge Of Land

by Hira Nabi
2019, Pakistan, 31’, 

How does a container vessel think? What would it dream and desire while traversing the world’s largest oceans? In All That Perishes at the Edge of Land, Hira Nabi gives voice to Ocean Master, a container vessel that is being violently dismembered in the harbour of Gadani, Pakistan. As much as the film traces the lifeworld of this vessel, it also zooms in on the workers who’ve left their homes and families behind to do this dangerous work.
