Premiering at SXSW in the Visions section,  the documentary “Barge” evocatively depicts the lives of the Mississippi River’s ship workers over 28 day shifts, shuttling cargo back and forth along America’s waterway.

As the synopsis continues: “Dryland’s misfits, these men from all backgrounds and experience level fastidiously work to achieve their individual dreams while holding together our nation’s industrial backbone.”

A debut feature from Austin-based Ben Powell, “Barge” appears to be an intimate portrait of the machinery of American ambitions. Check out some more images and the exclusive poster below:
