'.Load Cycle.'

A visual trance that goes through the daily odyssey of the “chaucheros” (longshoremen) of the Port of Masusa in the Amazon. This dock where dozens of ships that supply Iquitos, the largest city in the world without land connection. A continuous movement through which the resources of the jungle are also bled to the mainland. These men make titanic efforts to survive under the sun. Without wheels or cranes to relieve the weight on their backs of more than 120kg, submerged in a noisy shipwreck of more than 400 years of exploitation.
