Trucks, trains, huge ships, cranes, machines, containers, and more cranes! Filmmaker Alex Hallajian recorded operations at the Port of Long Beach, the second-busiest container port in the United States, 24/7 for seven months and turned it into this fascinating time lapse of day-to-day life working at a port: The Art of Stevedore.

Stevedore, dockworker, docker, dock labourer, wharfie, wharf rat, and/or longshoreman can have various waterfront-related meanings concerning loading and unloading ships, according to place and country.
