Pumping: A film by Joel Tauber
A lonely figure rides his handcar through the desert. He hauls his precious jug of water. Ominous memories of oil pumping continually haunt him. Shot with a hand-cranked camera, Pumping collapses time, as it contemplates big industry and our relationships with finite resources.
