Common Heritage


Dir. Emma Critchley Prod. Elena Hill 2019 25 min. UK

Common Heritage is an urgent response to the gold rush of deep-sea mining, exposing how reverberant layers of industrialisation have affected the way we relate to our environment. Highlighting fantasies we construct around exploration, the film draws into focus how these romanticized stages are in fact borders of conquest, annexed for geopolitical territory appropriation and mineral resources.
