A multitude of silent factory workers walk down a seemingly endless corridor towards the exit. The flashing neon transforms the space into a surreal light and sound show. At the end, they pose one last time for the camera before leaving the building. The automatic gates close slowly behind them. La sortie de l’usine Lumière à Lyon by the Lumière brothers dates back to 1895; now we face the end of the industrial age.
