Utilizing a plethora of archival material, Ravel's "Boléro" and pointed visual commentary, the filmmakers take us on a darkly humorous journey through the modern history of human labour, from industrialization to globalization. In the process of seeing how work "works," we learn that it actually doesn't for most of the world. Shane Smith
