Part One: We follow Angela, an overworked production assistant who must drive around Bucharest to film the casting for a “safety at work” video commissioned by a multinational company. Soon she encounters Marian, a half-paralysed worker, who gets the part.


Part Two: When Marian reveals on camera that his work-related accident is due to the company’s negligence, his statement ignites a scandal, which forces him to re-invent his story to suit the company’s narrative.


True to form, Golden Bear winner Radu Jude, sets his absurdist comedic drama in two parts. In a dizzying landscape, cinema, capitalism, and technology meet the political sociology of the post-totalitarian digital world.


The film premiered at the Locarno Film Festival, where it won a Special Jury Prize, and has also screened in Toronto and New York.
