Synopsis

JOBS FOR ALL! is a highly choreographed review of the Industrial Age as we know it today – an intense and playful roller coaster ride that demands the viewer confronts how “work works.” Culled entirely from archival footage, the film unfolds in the filmmakers’ trademark, and humorously critical, cinematic voices.

Review

Ravel’s ‘Bolero’ starts with a simple rhythm that repeats with a pattern. To this, various instruments are added, progressing in crescendo(increase in loudness) from beginning to the end. The found footage carried by the music begins with the first film in human history, Employees Leaving the Lumiere Factory(1895). The film started with the birth of factories and contains within it the history of factories. As all instruments serve the music to develop one rhythm into a larger and larger scale, a spectacle enfolds. It is the spectacle of global economic system in which factories are transferred to poor regions in the world, and of financial economic system where all values are abstracted into numbers. Bolero ends with the variation of all the instruments that have gathered and here, the instruments are mounds of trash and the children who stand over them. This is an ironic music video about a time of majority of labor leading to a single point─a time of factories that bear 99% of work for the 1%.
