Consumed: Documentary Inspiration

A cinematic voyage through the landscapes and factories of Chinese production. Bringing into focus the repetitive nature of contemporary manufacture and industrialism. Blurring the lines between documentary and fiction, a single worker narrates his story to the rhythm of industrial machinery. The film reveals the hidden world behind our everyday objects, re-framing complex supply chains that feed global desires as a narrative performance played out at a global scale, and investigating the place of the individual within this context. Produced in collaboration with Unknown Fields.

Documentary is just one of the categories that you can enter into for ASFF 2017. Whether you are an established or emerging practitioner, we want to hear from you.
