El Empleo – The Employment (2011)

Directed by Santiago ‘Bou’ Grasso
Written by Patricio Plaza
Animated by Santiago Grasso and Patricio Plaza
Production company: Opusbou

El Empleo is a wonderfully crafted, imaginative short about (in a nutshell) work. The film is somewhat surrealist, showing humans replacing everyday household items – and even machines, cars, elevator doors. The world of El Empleo presents us with a sort of reversal of the modern world, in which duties and functions performed by humans are increasingly automated and performed by machines. Highly allegorical, El Empleo has a great twist which will resonate with everyone familiar with the routines, hierarchies and often, existential emptiness of the world of routine servitude. Keep watching past the credits!
