The Human Surge

October 7, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

THIS SCREENING IS FREE FOR UWM STUDENTS AND UNION CINEMA MEMBERS!

$5 General Admission

A twentysomething in Argentina loses his warehouse job. Boys in Maputo, Mozambique, perform half-hearted sex acts in front of a webcam. A woman in the Philippines assembles electronics in a small factory. Williams’s inquisitive camera is in constant motion, as are his rootless characters, who wander aimlessly, make small talk, futz with their phones, and search for a working Internet connection. Unfolding within the unfree time between casual jobs, this wildly original rumination on labor and leisure in the global digital economy seems to take place in both the immediate present and the far horizon of the foreseeable future.

(Eduardo Williams, Argentina, Brazil, and Portugal, Spanish, Portugese, and Cebuano w/ Eng. Sub, 97 min., 2016, DCP)
