Directed by:

With a sober camera the film shows a mirror-image of today’s working world in which man degrades into a pure resource, in a denaturized space. Taking manager training courses and assessment centres as examples, we can see on which cleverly devised methods executives and organization consultants are falling back to optimize the achievement potential of their workforce. In this process, man as a unique and feeling individual is left behind. Carmen Losmann has succeeded in making an impressive film as far as both its content and artistic value are concerned. It confronts us with the uncomfortable question, how we are going to deal with such a world and how we want to continue living in it.
