Mitarbeiter Des Monats

A Film by Caroline Schwarz

Synopsis

EMPLOYEE OF THE MONTH
Two actors in four roles play and reflect upon the underlying focus of the film, namely: routine. In the process of modernity, people are involved less as individuals in conflicts, and more as representatives of a system. Using improvisation, this mockumentary develops its narrative through role-switching, interviews and an abstracted world in order to humorously point out how nurtured principles and predisposed hierarchies present themselves as self-discipline within individuals.

    Caroline Schwarz: with a lot of passion for stylized film-worlds, as a director, is interested in the border between art and fiction-film. Born in 1990 in Straslund, Caroline grew up in Wismar, lived for a short time in the Ruhr region and finally chose Berlin- Neukölln as her new home. After high school she decided to pursue an self-taught education in photography and moving image. From advertising to experiments, from her own short films to educational projects. Her last shortfilm „doors of Perception“ is currently being shown at several international film festivals and won, amongst other awards, the People’s Choice Award at the Humboldt International Short Film Festival, the Jury Award of Recognition at the Transilvania Shorts, received an Honorable Mention at the AMARCORD Chicago Arthouse Television and Video Festival and was named Best Experimental Film both at the Black Sea Film Festival and the Bucharest International Short Film Festival. The film was also invited to the group exhibition called Perfect Creatures for the 2016 major autumn gallery tour at the Spinnerei Leipzig. After finishing her next and current Shortfilm „Employee of the month“, she is now working on her first feature-Film, supported through the mentorship of Axel Ranisch and will start her post-graduate-studies at the KHM in Cologne in Octobre.
