The latest from Radu Jude, one of the leading European directors and two-time ZFF laureate (The Happiest Girl in the WorldEverybody in Our Family), is a provocative and dizzying satire about business culture and whitewashing of the corporate image, packed with absurdities that could only happen in real life. Honoured with two awards at this year’s Locarno, the film follows an overworked and underpaid Angela who drives around Bucharest filming potential protagonists for a workplace safety film commissioned by a multinational. When one of the interviewees blames the company for his accident, a scandal ensues.
