CPH:DOX -- COPENHAGEN INTERNATIONAL DOCUMENTARY FESTIVAL
"Exquisite study of the Trans-Alaska Pipeline."– The Museum of Modern Art
"Rappmund’s stunning photography underscores the dramatic visual contrast between the pipeline’s delicate linear form...and the vast, untouched, and unpopulated landscape." – The Avery Review
Measuring 800 miles in length, stretching from Prudhoe Bay in the north to Port Valdez in the south, the Trans-Alaska Pipeline is one of the world’s longest conduits for crude oil. Mostly raised due to permafrost and only 48 inches in diameter, the pipeline has moved 17 billion barrels of oil since its completion in 1977. Topophilia is both a matter-of-fact examination of the entire pipeline and downstream ports and refineries in Los Angeles, as well as a geographic examination of place within the greater context of social and environmental forces. The film was constructed from more than 100,000 still photographs. Its images present industrial magnificence next to natural sublimity in ways that highlight equivalencies, tensions, and contradictions.
