Freightened, the Real Price of Shipping is a thrilling investigation carried out around the globe which takes us behind the scenes of the sea shipping business, revealing 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. 90% of everything we consume comes from overseas, which makes sea shipping the true backbone of today's globalised economy. Freightened exposes the invincible business model of the sea freight apparatus, an obscure industry that acts beyond the public's radar and has become an ideal means of conveyance for arm traders and drug traffickers. The film also investigates how 60 000 ships pollute the world's oceans and contribute massively to climate change. What is the real price of shipping? Who are the key players of this global industry? And overall, what is its impact on the environment and on our lives?
