‘History of Containerisation’ is a multi-media presentation for Maersk Line. It was specially designed for the ‘Luxembourg European Capital Culture’ event of 2007. The original movie takes ten minutes and tells about the beginning of shipping and its influence on society and world trade. On this channel you can watch two minutes out of the presentation.
Starting point of the presentation is the impressive image archive of Maersk Line. It contains both historical images as assigned Magnum photography. Together with short facts, figures and quotes the story unfolds and shows how globalisation connected cultures all over the world.
‘History of Containerisation’ is streamed on the intranet of Maersk Line and is often presented during seminars, recruit events and information events. The accompanying musical score is the Maersk Line anthem and was specially composed for the company.
