The Seafarers is Stanley Kubrick's third film, a short for the Seafarers International Union, directed in June of 1953.
There are shots of ships, machinery, a naked woman (possibly to keep the union members' attenti...展开on), a canteen, and a union meeting. The film was shot in color, and was supervised by the staff of The Seafarers Log, the union magazine.
One memorable scene in the film takes place in a cafeteria. Kubrick chose a long, sideways-shooting dolly shot to establish the life of the seafarer's community. This shot is unmistakably a Stanley Kubrick sequence, and calls to mind his acknowledged influence Max Ophüls.
