Short on Work was designed and launched by the Marco Biagi Foundation - International Doctoral Research School in Labour Relations at the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia.
The aim of the contest is to identify and promote audiovisual documentaries capable of promoting an interdisciplinary reflection on contemporary work. The underlying idea is that the contemporary production of audiovisual representations of work, taking account of the innovative aspects both in terms of content (work as the subject of the documentary) and technique (film techniques, montage techniques), is capable of casting new light on the transformations taking place in the world of work in recent decades, moving beyond the traditional dichotomy between corporate productions and social documentaries. In this connection, Short on Work focuses in particular on small-budget productions, considering audiovisual communication as an instrument for documentation, research, social enquiry, self-representation and reflection. The collected works will form part of an international audiovisual archive on contemporary film, to be used for teaching and research purposes.
