Work Hard – Play Hard von Carmen Losmann (Deutschland)
The film shows with a sober camera a mirror-image of today's working world, in which man degrades into a pure resource, in a denaturized space.
Taking manager training courses und assessment centres as examples, we can see what cleverly devised methods executives and organisation consultants fall back on to optimize the achievement potential of their workforce.
In this process, man as a unique and feeling individual will be left behind. Carmen Losman has succeeded in making an impressive film as far as its content and artistic value are concerned. It confronts us with the uncomfortable question, how we are going to deal with such a world and how we want to continue living in it.
