SHIPBREAKERS, Directors: Ralph Vituccio, Tom Clancey, Paul Goodman
At Alang, in India, on a six-mile stretch of smoky beach, 40,000 migrant workers tear apart half of the world's discarded ships. This is one of the most dangerous industrial sites in the world. Every ship is a sump of toxic waste. Environmental and human rights organizations are outraged. Yet ship breaking has become a booming business for a few privileged ship-yard owners in less developed countries such as India, Pakistan and Bangladesh.
FROSTBITERS, Director: Thurston Smith
Blizzards, ice storms, wind, and freezing waters. Sailing?! FROSTBITING!
