"The Workplace", when people no longer have to work for a living


old workplace of mine, Minneapolis

Carlyn Hudson plays some tricks with us in her little 10-minute satire “The Workplace’ (2021), from DUST.

A young man is introduced to his officemates on his first day of work.  We find out later it’s on Mars.  The old fashioned workplace gives people a sense of purpose.  They shake hands; no more Covid.

He has experience in a conventional workplace.  (I faced the retort in my late teens, “what, you’ve never worked before?”

Outdoors, the oxygen is running out and people will need to wear masks again.
