Mitarbeiter des Monats/Employee of the Month, Caroline Schwarz, Germany, 2017, 11′
Experimental Mockumentary o.v. German, subtitles English/Italian
April 28th, 2018, 9 pm, Exworks – Italian Premiere
A mysterious film crew accompanies Mr. and Mrs. N. during their employment trial period at the chewing-gum-sorting department, where they learn that: one bowl always remains empty.
Using improvisation, this mockumentary develops its narrative through role-switching, interviews, and an abstracted world, with a view to humorously point out how nurtured principles and predisposed hierarchies present themselves as self-discipline within individuals.
Caroline Schwarz (1990) is a German filmmaker and photographer, she created several short films, among which Doors of Perception, screened and presented with awards by many international film festivals. She is now working on her first feature-film while studying at Kunsthochschule für Medien in Cologne.
