Staff Entrance

A film about industrial slaughterhouses? The idea isn’t new. Images of animals being put to death and the cutting of meat, morbidly fascinating, have inspired more than one filmmaker. Manuela Frésil’s subject, however, doesn’t restrict itself to a cinematographic exploitation of this hypnotic ballet, or an environmental tract denouncing the treatment of animals. It is humans we are dealing with here, and the hell of mass production. A terrifying film on obsession with productivity and its attempts to transform humans into

machines.

Manuela Frésil began her film career as a writer of fiction and documentary in

the 90s. STAFF ENTRANCE competed for the Grand Prix of the French Competition at Marseille International Film Festival 2011. // Films (Selected): TERRE-NEUVAS (1992), NOTRE CAMP AGNE (1999), SI LOIN DES BÊTES (2003), POUR DE VRAI (2003), LES NUITS DE LA PRÉFECTURE (2010, short), ENTRÉE DU PERSONNEL (Staff Entrance, 2011)
