Tribute: Harun Farocki

Arbeiter verlassen die Fabrik

Harun Farocki
Germany 1995
36min
V'14

The first film ever projected is listed under the title THE WORKERS LEAVING THE FACTORY, but the workers’ film has not become a main genre in film history. The space in front of the gate is far from being a preferred cinematic location. I have collected images from several countries and many decades expressing the idea “exiting the factory”, both staged and documentary – as if the the time has come to collect film-sequences, in the way words are brought together in a dictionary.
