DOK Leipzig Film Festival

Before the Bridge


Before the Bridge




CATALOGUE TEXT
Clear views from a driving car of post-apocalyptic scenarios: ruined factory buildings, dilapidated houses, heavy air. Then: dust-free shots of huge storehouses, robot arms, forklifts. A catalogue of disaster images meets a science fiction fantasy. No Hollywood superlativism but the effects of the automation and robotisation of the working world. The example: Indiana. A fleeting glance at Trump’s America – and the future of the economy.

Lukas Stern


Nominated for Healthy Workplaces Film Award
