A Summer Job
Super 8 transferred to video, 6″56, 2009
A dramatized story from Story Café
A Summer Job is story of a disastrous summer job experience. A British woman told how she “almost got sold as a sex slave to Arabia” in Johanna Lecklin’s art project, Story Café in Broadway Market in London 2004. The film is a re-make of the original story. The choreographer and the dancers were sent to a little town in Italy, where they ended up in the hands of the mafia and make an unbelievable escape.
Three persons with different English accents tell the same story on the video. A dark woman with glamorous clothes starts the story, a black young girl continues and a Russian man finishes the story.
