Introduction by Paul Moers on 9 Oct
With our renewed appreciation of supermarkets and their employees, this is the perfect film for the Covid-19 era. Behind the scenes of a gigantic Brazilian supermarket, we listen to the conversations and lively fantasies of shelf stackers, cashiers and bakers. Between shelves stacked with toilet rolls and bread, they talk about young love, conspiracy theories and their obsession with Japanese animation. Tali Yankelevich’s My Darling Supermarket elevates the everyday concerns of the working man and woman into an epic. In addition to fantastic shots of seemingly endless rows of products, they shed light on the well-oiled machine that keeps our consumer society running, and on the dreams that make the monotony bearable.
