Director's Note
One of the constant and terrible thoughts of the modern people is the fear related to their job. Controls and surveillance in the working environment, the fear of being laid off and having temporary work... This fear and/or anxiety slowly erode us and drive us into death. This film traces the anxiety and the fear related to our reality of labor through the physical and psychological landscapes of the space, called ‘Guro factory complex’.
