RÊVER SOUS LE CAPITALISME / Dreaming Under Capitalism

RÊVER SOUS LE CAPITALISME / Dreaming Under Capitalism

As the camera magnifies the graphic lines and cubic architectural office spaces, twelve dreamers recount how neo-management is authoring the nightmarish fictions of their nights. In their work place, at home or in a public space, they recount and then interpret their memory of a dream. These mistreated souls describe, in a poetic and political way, their subjective suffering at work. Bit by bit, the dreamers and their dreams portray a world dominated by neoliberal capitalism.
