The Works

Running time: 9'20”

Production: PL 2015

Janusz Szymański’s film is very often described as a “study in cinematography.” The director shows the collapse of the “Autotraktori” factory located in the suburbs of Tirana, the capital of Albania, and the stories of three labourers still assiduously working there. The author presents their toil and their everyday life. One can feel the presence of two different times in the picture – the bygone (when the plant was still vibrant) and the present (a fall of the works and the metallurgy industry).
