DESCRIPTION

Introduction            Jeffrey Skoller

In Person            Daniel Eisenberg

 

What do a luxury automobile, a wall clock, and the cymbal have in common?

Daniel Eisenberg’s latest film is an elegant and visually sensual essay on contemporary models of production. Eisenberg travels to a state-of-the-art

Volkswagen factory in Dresden, Germany, where individualized cars are hand built by high-tech specialists; to Chicago, where blind workers produce wall clocks for federal government offices; and to a deafening factory in Istanbul, where today's most sought-after cymbals are cast and hammered by hand, exactly as they were four hundred years ago. The Unstable Object quietly probes the relationships our global economy creates among individuals around the world. Kelly Shindler

After the screening, Jeffrey Skoller and Daniel Eisenberg will sign copies of Postwar: The Films of Daniel Eisenberg, a collection of essays edited by Skoller.
