En attendant les robots Natan Castay

En attendant les robots

Inspired by a 2019 sociological and prophetic essay entitled En attendant les robots, docu-fiction Human Not Human delves into a reality shared by tens of thousands of people around the world: turking. Night and day, turkers carry out online microtasks for Amazon. Through the fictional character of Otto, the director makes an experimental investigation into this digital world where blurring a face on Google Street View earns you a cent and employees are paid in Amazon gift cards. Between clicks, in the semi-darkness of his Belgian apartment, Otto videocalls with real-life colleagues who, like him, are trying to get by in a world increasingly dominated by machines. (MAS)
