THE STAND-BY GENERATION (La generacion del estanbai) - Trailer - TWN
*Best Short Film, Fine Arts International Film Festival, San Juan, PR*
Shot in Puerto Rico, THE STAND-BY GENERATION explores the challenges of young workers seeking secure and stable jobs. The majority of the jobs offered to the new generation of workers in Puerto Rico are precarious. This documentary follows the lives of young people caught in the ‘precariat’ world of part-time and temporary under-employment devoid of security. This new generation of university graduates is choosing to stay in Puerto Rico despite its ongoing financial crisis, but they are forced to struggle to survive by any means necessary as their aspirations are placed on standby. (2016, 20min)
