Freightened – 2018

The real price of shipping - 52’


Freightened is a thrilling investigation carried out around the globe which takes us behind the scenes of the sea shipping business. 90% of everything we consume today comes from overseas; Freightened reveals the mechanics and perils of a powerful, secret and highly unregulated industry that holds the key to our global economy, our environment and the very model of our civilization. A truly stunning, thought-provoking and eye-opening docu-thriller!

Why we like it:

A powerful and uncompromising investigation, Freightened opened us to a whole new set of issues we knew nothing about.
