The Trouble with Being Human These Days
'We live in a world which no longer questions itself, which lives from one day to another managing successive crises, without knowing where it is going and without trying to plan the itinerary' (Zygmunt Bauman, In search of politics). This film is a bold attempt at makin g a provocative, and yet informed diagnosis of the modern uncertainty. It is a 'road movie', a journey through Europe, Zygmunt Bauman's life, and the darker sides of our globalised society.
