Hito Steyerl’s In Free Fall (2010) follows the journey of a Boeing 707 airplane from its acquisition by TWA, through its role in Israeli military operations and subsequent stardom in the Hollywood movie Speed (1994), to its afterlife as scrap metal in the Mojave Desert and DVDs in China. In doing so Steyerl traces tangled economies through the life of a commodity.
