Warm-up #OWR11: „The Limits of Work” Screening

On Friday, February 23rd, we will discuss about work in extreme conditions, after viewing the documentary„The Limits of Work” (directed by: Apolena Rychlíková). The main character of the film herself, Saša Uhlová, will be joining us for the screening. She is a journalist who for six months has worked at some of the worst-paid jobs in the Czech Republic. The film was inspired by the articles she wrote on the same subject.


Synopsis: Journalist Saša Uhlová spent six months exploring working conditions at the worst-paid jobs in the Czech Republic. She spent several weeks in a hospital washroom, at a poultry plant, behind a cash register and at a waste sorting facility. Her experience formed the basis for a very personal series of reports about people working invisible jobs under shocking conditions, published on the A2larm.cz website. Apolena Rychlíková has turned these articles into a documentary film consisting of scenes shot at Uhlová’s home and of video footage taken at her places of work, accompanied by Uhlová’s read commentary.
