Still from Chain

As regional character disappears and corporate culture homogenizes our surroundings, it is increasingly hard to tell where you are. Malls, theme parks, hotels, and corporate centers worldwide have joined into one “superlandscape,” which in this film shapes the lives of two women caught within it. One works for a corporation; the other is a young drifter. Shot over six years, Jem Cohen’s visually striking work weaves together documentation and fiction, and the mundane and the mysterious, into a meditation on the spaces we inhabit.
