DOK Leipzig, 2015: Healthy Workplace Award

Rita Bakacs had to rise early to film her protagonists (all of them male): the vacancies hatch at the Neukölln Job Centre opens at four in the morning. Latecomers could come away empty-handed. Waiting, smoking, drinking coffee. If you’re lucky and own a pair of hard toed boots you may get one of the coveted day jobs – hard work for little money. In a few precisely observed and edited scenes Bakacs depicts the dead end of precarious work. (Text: Grit Lemke, DOK Leipzig) Official Selection DOK Leipzig, 2015 (World Premiere)
