Die Bewerbung [videorecording] = The interview / von Harun Farocki
- Language Note:
- German dialogue with optional English subtitles.
- Documentary about German training classes for job interviewing. The director notes, "In the summer of 1996, we filmed application training courses in which one learns how to apply for a job. School-leavers, university graduates, people who have been retrained, the long-term unemployed, recovered drug addicts, and mid-level managers -- all of them are supposed to learn how to market and sell themselves, a skill to which the term 'self-management' is applied. The self is perhaps nothing more than a metaphysical hook from which to hang a social identity."
