Programmed by Federico Rossin
An implacable inquiry into factory work, a hallucina- ting journey into the alienation that breaks the natu- ral in the body, bending it to the machine to the point of robotisation. The headlong rhythm of the sequences plays dialectically with an audaciously ex- perimental soundtrack, a mix of materials that is not content just to describe with images, but which en- riches their plastic force and stylistic rigour. A model of cinematographic essay which surprises by its contemporary relevance.
This film is part of the “Politics of the Essay” screening. Listen to Federico Rossin’s presentation here (french):
