I Lost My Job

I Lost My Job is a short documentary film which sets out to explore the phenomenon which is affecting and due to affect many people’s lives – namely, technological unemployment. The documentary also examines what we can do about it as a society through the analysis of a transitional direction.

Particular questions need to be raised about this subject. What are the social consequences of ongoing technological unemployment within our current economic system? How do we handle such a situation when this process is inevitable with the ongoing emergence of machine automation and new technologies taking over repetitive jobs?

    The answer to the ‘problem’ of technological unemployment has been around for 75 years already. Bertrand Russell dealt with it in his essay ‘In Praise Of Idleness’. http://www.zpub.com/notes/idle.html

    Losing jobs is only sad in a capitalist economy. It’s time to rethink “employment” as a necessity in the context of technology. We don’t need them.
