Screening: 'Czech Journal – The Limits of Work' by Apolena Rychlíková

Saša Uhlová


Journalist Saša Uhlová spent six months exploring working conditions in the Czech Republic's worst-paid jobs. She spent weeks in a hospital washroom, at a poultry plant, behind a cash register and at a waste sorting facility. Her experience formed the basis of a very personal series of articles about people working in invisible jobs under shocking conditions. Apolena Rychlíková (Czech Republic) has turned these articles into a documentary that consists of scenes shot at Uhlová’s home and of video footage taken at her places of work, accompanied by commentaries on these read by Uhlová.

In Czech with English subtitles
