JOB LIFE

Experimental Short Film

Duration: 19 min
Black and White / HD / Argentina

 

Synopsis:
An average employee burdened by depression and loneliness, caused by the job demands of his boss and the eternal routine in which his life is imprisoned. 
Desperate, he allows himself to dream with an iota of freedom. 
Trapped to break with oppression and, with it, his existential emptiness.

This Argentinian film, narrated between metaphors, is a message. It is the symbol of work oppression and the empty routines that enslave most people in this era.

Cast:

Javier Piazza, Fernando Beracochea & Belén Sevillano. 

Director Statement:

Why Black and White?

The choice of black and white is related to the protagonist’s introspective and it was meant to reflect his anguish and depression. 
Like all things, when used, they tend to lose their brightness or color: ‘Javier’ as he loses the essential values of the human being, due to labor oppression, he begins to see his surroundings on a grayscale; trapped there, we see the landscapes in depressing tones in which he lives.

Understanding white and black as beginning and end respectively, the film shows the protagonist debating with himself such cycle. Longing to get out of that tepid scale, he looks for something defined: the end. 
Black and White were used as another character in the story, its choice was of great importance to the plot.

 

This is the first short film by Roberto I. Ercolalo. A movie made it with a Handycam.
