Where do ships go to die? ‘All That Perishes at the Edge of Land’ is filmed at the Gadani ship-breaking
yard in Baluchistan, where condemned vessels are beached and taken apart by men. This film considers the industries built around collapsed vessels as the site of contextual inquiries: destruction of marine ecologies, exploitative labour practices affecting migrant labourers, networks of
industries aggregating wealth, and the disposal of waste in the Global South.
