In the future, jobs still suck – but in whole new ways. By 2040, the global economy has flipped and North Americans are a cheap labor pool for wealthy Asian markets. A Chinese documentary show focuses on the “ghosts” (Cantonese slang for “white people”) unlucky enough to have been born into the slums of Toronto. The faux documentary takes us through some of the forms of employment for North Americans such as living spambots, digital janitors, robot baby technicians, and silk collectors. A low-fi sci-fi film produced over four years with an all volunteer cast and crew.
