Measure of a Man – Jan 19, 7pm

Directed by: Stéphane Brizé, 91min, French with English subtitles

Thierry is an unemployed everyman who must submit to a series of quietly humiliating ordeals in his search for work. Futile retraining courses that lead to dead ends, interviews via Skype, an interview-coaching workshop critique of his self-presentation by fellow jobseekers; all are mechanisms that seek to break him down and strip him of identity and self-respect in the name of the reengineering of a workforce fit for a neoliberal technocratic system.
