Typical Luc Moullet: dryly comedic narrative about our cold society, in which room for inter-human relations continually decreases. – IFF Rotterdam
In 1993, I filmed "Always More". The indispensable complement was missing. It evokes in 14 minutes the development and expansion, from 1968 to 2010, of the devices based on computers, automats, interactive terminals and others that can be found in everywhere. The aim of our current system appears to be to employ a single individual in each sector of activity. We are not there yet, but we’re getting there... A schizophrenic world, since, at the same time, businesses have to pay the price for these suppressions in an indirect way. We can’t leave millions of human beings jobless. An observation that is both bitter and funny: the methods of this perpetual reduction are surprising and comical. — Luc Moullet
