PREVIEW SCREENING: THE NOTHING FACTORY + Q&A

January 25 @ 19:15 - 23:00

THE NOTHING FACTORY

ICA presents: PREVIEW SCREENING: THE NOTHING FACTORY + Q&A with director Pedro Pinho.

One night, a group of workers realizes that their administration has organized the stealing of machines from their factory. They soon understand that this is the first signal of a massive layoff. Most of them refuse to cooperate during the individual negotiations and they start to occupy their workplace. When the administration vanishes to their great surprise, they’re left with a half-empty factory.

THE NOTHING FACTORY unexpectedly morphs from a vérite-like drama into a neorealist musical to pay homage to those occupations and self-management projects that were prevalent during the revolutionary period of 1970s Portugal and still strongly resonate within today current European social and political climate.

This screening is followed by a Q&A with director Pedro Pinho.

THE NOTHING FACTORY then enjoys a regular run at the ICA from 26 JAN to 01 FEB. Find out times and book HERE.
