The Gig is Up


So much of contemporary reality is entirely dependent upon an increasing number of heavily exploited workforces, from Amazon to Uber. Canadian filmmaker Shannon Walsh pulls back the curtain on the global gig economy, creating a complex and compelling cinematic essay about the role of work within modern tech-savvy societies. Pitting the ‘blue-sky’ thinking of Silicon Valley against the harsh realities of wage slavery and precarity at the coal-face of gig working, this is a vital and probing account of the revolutions, going almost unnoticed, within 21st century working environments.
