director: Piotr Szulkin
original title: Kobiety pracujace
running time: 6 min.
synopsisA series of five static, carefully lit shots of single workers concentrating on their job is complemented by a joyless look at an exhausted mother. The amplified sounds of the environment that accompany each scene culminate in the composition of a baby's screams and the sighs of a couple copulating on the screen in a woman's bedroom.
