Employee of the Month
Director: Caroline Schwarz
Runtime: 10 mins
Two actors in four roles play and reflect upon the underlying focus of the film, namely: routine. In the process of modernity, people are involved less as individuals in conflict, and more as representatives of a system. Using improvisation, this mockumentary develops its narrative through role- switching, interviews and an abstracted world in order to humorously point out how nurtured principles and predisposed hierarchies present themselves as self-discipline within individuals.
As a film director, Caroline Schwarz has a passion for creating stylized films. After high school in Germany, she decided to pursue a self-taught education in photography and moving image. Her work has been shown at many international film festivals. She recently started her post-graduate-studies in film, at the KHM in Cologne.
