Curated as part of the Film Studies, Programming and Curation MA at the National Film and Television School, HUMAN RESOURCES is a season of films that charts a 60-plus year historical overview of the depiction of work and labour on screen.

The shifting landscape of labour throughout the 20th and 21st centuries is shown through the evolution of its cinematic representation, ranging from manual labour’s forced adaptation in the face of industrialisation to threats to individual identity in the midst of the gig economy. This season paints an evocative, wide-ranging view of our complicated relationship with the jobs that provide for us and often define us.
