Canned Dreams

By Gary M. Kramer and Michael Miller.

Silverdocs, the all-documentary film festival held at the AFI Theatre in Silver Spring, MD, celebrated its 10th anniversary this year. There were many memorable films on a wide variety of subjects from competitors vying for the coveted spot as the human specimen at an Icelandic penis museum to a history of the Polaroid, and Navajo Indians suffering from XP, a rare and lethal disease. The best films chronicled people at work, or for whom work was a form of play (or vice versa). Here is a rundown of some notable titles.

Arguably the best film at Silverdocs was Canned Dreams (Gauriloff, 2012). Opening with an image of a conveyor belt and the empty cans that it carries, this astonishing documentary examines the lives of the trapped people who work to fill that can. Many of them do difficult jobs—in slaughterhouses, in mines—often just to put food on their own family’s tables. The film artfully shows the globalization of a can of ravioli and the universality of the lives of the folks whose work produces it. Specifically, Canned Dreams emphasizes how these people are working for their families. A mother in Portugal explains she wants to stay healthy so she can send her daughter to university; a Romanian man describes the joy he bought his daughter when he got her the teddy bear she wanted. He also confesses that he dreamt about blood after he killed an animal for the first time. These tales are poignant, and moving, and in contrast to the many difficult scenes of animals being prepared for food (a cow being degloved is as hard to watch as a pig being bled.) But these unflinching scenes are necessary to show what these people do to earn their livelihoods. Director Katja Gauriloff eloquently films her subjects, making a Polish butcher indelible as he describes his feeling of betrayal and thoughts of revenge as he works with beef. In contrast, scenes in France (eggs) and Italy (olive oil) are wordless (save some chickens squawking) and wondrous. Canned Dreams has a hypnotic quality even when it is literally and figurative gut-wrenching. (A scene of a Romanian woman sweeping up pigs eyes and ears after she recounts a story of her abusive boyfriend and her effort to get an abortion is almost too much.) But the dreams of these very human workers—to have a girlfriend, as a sensitive Denmark animal husbander desires—build to a powerful, unforgettable final shot.

The sec and justice dept need to get their house in order

The folks at the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Justice Department?
The feds are, after all, the only people who really possess the power to prevent things like Enron from happening in the first place.
But they let them go on every day of the week, from one end of Wall Street to the other.
It is only after the fact - when the businesses have been looted and destr...eed, anyone - was bothering even to read the financials of public companies before waving them past the metal detectors on the way to the capital trough of Wall Street.
Yet I'm not holding my breath for any answers, and you shouldn't either - lest you turn blue.
In the current climate on Wall Street, we'll all probably wear ourselves out first taking free swats at the Enron piñata.

Investment advice

The residual effects of the Enron (ENE) debacle are slowly, but surely, beginning to PERMEATE the investment landscape. In many instances it is hard to know whether the secondary problems are critically severe, or just a case of paranoid investors overreacting to ghosts. In 1997, ENE was a rather ordinary gas distribution company trading at $20/share. In the 1998-2000 period, the stock rocketed ...AVG.
