When Brian Kabaret is preparing a film about Gender Equality, he is confronted with the bureaucracy of the International company KSI, that rents spaces for meetings and shooting films. Although Brian’s film is according to the rules agreement, Patrick Sandstone, the receptionist doubts whether the request can be approved since he feels it is a sensitive topic for the multinational company. Brian is forced to be kept waiting in a company, which does not seem able to decide about a topic that might affect their reputation. Is gender really still a political issue? On the other hand, Paul's idealism is challenged. Is he not too naive? Does he have a too simple image of a world, that is much more complex? Are his assumptions valid? The film shows a case, where characters might have the same ideals and have sympathy for each other, but are paralyzed by the situation and the environment in which they are operating. Director of Photography: Fred Delsemme
The aim of the film is:
- To show an organizational system and culture that is not flexible to adapt to an external impulse
- To show an environment that avoids discussion about the topic and that is not fully aware of the concept of gender equality
- To show the motivation of an idealist filmmaker, who might need to understand his context a bit better.
