Factory

Australia, 1984 (MIFF 1986, Video Visions - Local Scenery - Australian Video Art)

Director: Anne Carter, David Chesworth

This tape does not try to portray the dehumanising aspects of factory work Rather the activities unfold as some kind of ritual performance in the courtyard of the habitual monarchs — Order and Efficiency.

The production presents a series of movements between people and machines that highlight the process of construction.
