keep shiftin'

Germany / 2019 / documentary / 21' / Short Film Competition

A glass plant in a border region. At night, it is empty and lit up with just a few lamps. It comes to life with the arrival of its first employees. They are well-built, tattooed men from the Czech Republic and Germany. They live in symbiosis, communicate in both languages, conduct rough conversations during breaks, but mostly they are focused on work. Thanks to their strong lungs and muscles, fragile beauty is created in the plant every day.
