Post-screening discussion with director Eisenberg.

"Eisenberg’s films defy categorization. This is in fact no ordinary industrial film, but a magisterial statement about the contemporary experience of labor." - Jennifer Peterson, author: Workers Leaving The Factory

September 30 & October 1 | 

Three factories. Three radically different modes of production. One of the world’s largest prosthetics factory, far removed in the mountains of Germany; a small haute-couture glove atelier in southern France, where each glove is made by hand; and a distressed jeans factory in central Turkey, where about 2000 pairs of jeans are produced daily, reveal paradigms of contemporary production, organization, and labor. Using techniques of durational observation, THE UNSTABLE OBJECT II reveals the deeper meanings of these objects and sites, and in our world where the nature of work is radically changing, allows us the time and space to consider our own place in the order of things. Post-screening discussion with director Eisenberg.
