He draws his trowel across the concrete in even strokes. The construction worker in Rio de Janeiro is the protagonist of a one-minute video. All of the short films in the series “Labour in a Single Shot” are about breadwinning around the world. The requirement was to make a film with no cuts and two minutes long at most as an experiment with technical and thematic possibilities. A selection of the video films will be shown later this year in two large exhibitions held in Berlin and Boston.
