“Labour in a Single Shot” with Antje Ehmann and Haroun Farocki
It was the first publicly screened film in film history, dating back to 1895. Workers Leaving the Factory by the Lumière Brothers, shows mostly female workers leaving their factory and walking out of the frame to the left and right. It's only 45 seconds of footage – and yet the film remains important to documentary filmmakers from around the world. “What would these images look like today?”, was the subject of a film workshop, run by Harun Farocki and Antje Ehmann in Boston.
