Labor is what we do by the hour but its progress sets its own pace. Work In Progress is an extreme example of this. On the surface it’s a film that looks at labor: paid and unpaid, material and immaterial, examining the convergence between the worker and the consumer. But it’s also an examination of production, over time. It’s a film not just about labor now, but labor over the course of a lifetime. With no two screenings being the same, the project adapts and evolves to the time when it screens. The act of documenting and presenting the work itself becomes a long-term endeavor, a long term laboring. Shot over the course of a filmmaker’s lifetime, through two-minute segments, the film examines the rhythms of labor and how they express themselves in the processes, facilities, and durations of the act.
