A startling new look at the universe of work.

This exploration of the rhythms, systems and routines of factory work makes vibrant and fascinating cinema out of the repetitive interactions between humans and machines. Director Côté, in this multi-layered artistic documentary, focuses on the private inventions that enable those who perform factory labour to assert their humanity. The high-definition images and a dense musique concrete soundtrack combine to produce an overwhelming impact.
