Labour Power Plant
a film by Robert Schlicht and Romana Schmalisch,
France/Germany 2019, 85 min., English subtitles



Iméra artists in residence, Robert Schlicht and Romana Schmalisch, will screen their film "Labour Power Plant", their first feature film, which was presented at the 2019 Berlinale.

A new production centre, maybe set in an undetermined future. What is being produced here? People with their own wills, interests and desires are being equipped with the different physiological, cognitive, psychological and social core competencies to transform them into human resources.

The film “Labour Power Plant” shows the life in the fictitious eponymous institution. While the overarching structure may appear dystopic, all of its elements are based on existing courses in training centres, and both teachers and trainees play in part themselves, acting out the social construction of the commodity labour power.
