This creative, optimistic documentary takes a deep dive into the design studio LOT-EK, which specializes in upcycling old shipping containers. The repurposing of these steel boxes has captured the studio’s imagination for over a quarter-century. They have remade containers into homes, schools, galleries, libraries, and more. From ocean to workshop, we see LOT-EK give new life to these millions of old and unused shipping containers, inspiring change in communities as well as in the world of architecture.  (dir. Thomas Piper, US, 2023, 81m)
