La mano invisible

The Invisible Hand

In a bare industrial warehouse, a group of people are carrying out their jobs in front of an audience (which we never see): a bricklayer, a butcher, a dressmaker, a telemarketer, a waiter, a warehouse worker, a mechanic, an IT worker and a cleaner, who mechanically do and undo their work. The person pulling the strings behind this representation […] remains hidden, an obscure demiurge who squeezes to the point of strangulation those who can’t fight against an invisible enemy. (Seville European Film Festival)
