About this Event

SPOON/Karote

North American Premiere

66 min. No dialogue.

In this ode to the lowly plastic spoon, the renowned Latvian documentary director Laila Pakalniņa follows the long, work-intensive journey behind the manufacturing of picnic cutlery. Oil is retrieved from subterranean depths; transported to processing plants; transformed into plastic; molded into the shape of a spoon, and then transported to convenience stores — only to be discarded shortly after being purchased. It takes a highly developed society to pull off such a complex and logistically complicated process; but to what end? Poetically and seamlessly, Spoon shows how far Latvia has come in some ways, but how far it has to go in others. Directed by Laila Pakalniņa (Latvia, 2019)
