China Town \ Lucy Raven (2009)
Dir: Lucy Raven / USA / 51 mins / Cert. U
An experimental animation tracing copper mining and production from an open pit mine in Nevada to a smelter in China. China Town considers what it actually means to “be wired” and in turn, to be connected, in today’s global economic system. Composed entirely of individual images with varying frame rates, this intriguing, long edit mirrors the many discrete processes, human efforts, and geographic locations that go into copper mining and commodity production.
