THE HUMAN FACTOR (28', France, 2011, dir: Thibault le Texier)
What is good for the factory is good for the family! Winner at Clermon-Ferrand, THE HUMAN FACTOR creates with the help of found footage a tragicomical depiction of the birth of the efficiency theories of Frederick Taylor. As the story goes, in 1914, an engineer exchanges letters with his wife, while away on a mission to reorganize a factory. As he tells her about his experiments in taylorism, she picks up bits and pieces of this method and applies it to her daily tasks at home. While the Taylor system starts to disappoint him, his wife becomes a true domestic engineer.
