According to Karl Marx, “the production of too many useful things results in too many useless people.” The rigorous study of capitalism by the German philosopher has durably established that mass production is inextricably linked with the alienation of workers. Some communist filmmakers like Eisenstein or Giuseppe de Santis have brilliantly shown this process in the past. Today the situation of labor world is less comparable to a “class struggle”, but the problems of domination and pain in workplaces are still very topical.
Our selection of films for the month of July will present four stories of people reacting in many different ways to unbearable conditions of work, finding more or less violent solutions, but always revealing a deep crisis, both individual and general, filmed in many different genres, from dark humor to thriller.
