Living Labour

Capital is vampire-like, wrote Karl Marx. Living Labour is living proof of that contention. The camera captures the everyday lives of Polish, Spanish, Roma and other migrant workers in the Netherlands in a calm, almost dreamlike manner. Migrants in a position of dependence who have to wait at some ungodly hour in some godforsaken place to be picked up by a bus. Who are forced to live in cabins in the woods or caravans by the side of motorway and kick a ball around in their fluorescent workwear. Accommodation is arranged by their employer, and the rent is deducted from their wages. A silent witness to what they have to endure, Living Labour gives these migrant workers a face. Filmmaker Renzo Sgolacchia will be interviewed by journalist and expert in labor migration Małgorzata Bos-Karczewska.
