> DESCRIPTION

"Hutton is more sublime than surreal… a landscape artist whose work is rooted in the wondrous if humble moment." Los Angeles Times

The latest opus from Peter Hutton chronicles, in short, the birth, life and death of a colossal container ship. The filmmaker, who has long explored water imagery and maritime themes, began this work three years ago when he traveled to South Korea to film industrial ship building in one of the world’s largest modern shipyards. At Sea then documents one of the container ship’s cargo-hauling journeys, from Montreal to Hamburg across the North Atlantic. The film comes to a close in Chittagong, Bangladesh’s biggest port, where Hutton recorded the astonishing and hazardous process of ship breaking at a maritime graveyard on the shores of the Bay of Bengal.
