Video, 4:00 min.

Work grants a man the essence of his life; it dictates his mood, his relationship with his surroundings and family, and it ultimately serves as the driving wheel propelling everything that goes on his world.

In this short film, Pascal Aubier makes use of a series of successive pictures to portray the series of events that completes a cycle.

A day in the life of a worker, commencing with the siren summoning the employees to enter the factory and take up their positions, and concluding with the death of…..a rat.
