Restructuring of work has already begun. 197 million unemployed worldwide and burnout turning into the new national disease are sufficient arguments for finding alternative work and company structures. Looking at examples in Brazil, Serbia and Austria, we see how such systems can work in different ways: workers’ participation, profit-sharing and abolition of hierarchy.
The town of Lahore was a center of musical culture - until music was considered sinful under Sharia law in 1977. Musicians were partly vilified and music was banned into private homes. After restrictions eased, an amazing recording of “Take Five” goes viral and several Pakistani musicians are invited by jazz legend Wynton Marsalis to perform at Lincoln Center. Andy Schocken and Academy awarded Sharmeen Obaid tell a different kind of story about Pakistan – a story about its people, not its politics and how music has the ability to bring people together across cultural divides.
Remember the culture clash in The Gods Must Be Crazy? This time it´s real. One of the most ancient cultures on our planet is undergoing a major change. The Ju/Hoansi Bushmen in Namibia are not allowed to hunt anymore and need to converge with our so called “civilized” lifestyle. For the first time the Ju/Hoansi Bushmen travel through the Kalahari and then right into the heart of Europe. What starts as a look at their fascinating culture becomes an even more fascinating look on our Western lifestyle. A warm and humorous reflexion of our habits through the eyes of people who are about to give up their million year old traditions.
