Jaśmina Wójcik draws on documentary film and enriches it with elements of video art, choreography and participatory art. She invites the former employees of one of Europe’s largest tractor plants into the empty, dilapidated halls. In addition to its cinematic or artistic value, the document has a special social value – it gives back a sense of community and meaning to human biographies. The film is reminiscent of the factory not so much of an industrial space as of a human, social space – an attempt to activate the dormant potential in the heroes, who long for the past.
