An open-ended exploration of the energies and rituals of various workplaces. From one worker to another and one machine to the next; hands, faces, breaks, toil: what kind of absurdist, abstract dialogue can be started between human beings and their need to work? What is the value of the time we spend multiplying and repeating the same motions that ultimately lead to a rest – a state of repose whose quality defies definition?


Denis Côté

Denis Côté, one of the most prominent figures in the modern independent cinema landscape, lives in Quebec. His experimental films have been shown at leading film festivals around the world. He studied film in Montreal and made a number of short films, before making his directorial debut in 2005 with the film “Les États Nordiques”, which won the Golden Leopard at the Locarno Film Festival.
