A COLLECTION OF HOURS
2018, documentary, 18', Language: Bulgarian
'a collection of hours' is a minimalistic audiovisual portrait of the cherry harvest of a Flemish fruit company. Each of the 70 Bulgarian workers is working a total of 324 hours, the maximum allowed by Belgian law. What follows is a very serene and sober cycle of working, eating and sleeping that never seems to halt. The in between times seem merely a waiting room for the next part to start.
Together with a thesis about the ethnographic wave in documentary film where I examined the practice of the Sensory Ethnography Lab of Harvard University, I completed my Master’s degree.
