Episode 6.Origin of the Proletariat
A Muslim worker who left her home moves with the changes of money rate and global situation. She, however, still has her own Muslim religious belief which does not become her nomadic life. She also believes in her destiny, which is not inconsistent with her daily struggle and resistance. Her life is between struggle and destiny.
What does Capital of the empire carry? Labor or desire. We lost our home in the empire. No more does your mother tongue have its hometown. Mother, father, and even yourself is now anonymous. But keep in mind that there is a door between inside and outside. The speed of the door is the only thing that is able to define the current of your desire.
The omnibus project The Empire, one feature film, consists of 7 episodes which are created each by 7 independent film makers, who differ from one another in how they speak, but share one issue-what is the empire? In the film, The Empire, they speak of globalization in Neo-Liberalism, photography for wedding, circulation of power, family, school, war, migrant workers, Missile Defense System, and even nuclear to depict how violence and oppression are produced by the power that still works simultaneously in both daily life and the whole world. The Empire is everywhere. It is not far away from here but even in my body. And it is delicately entangled in our life and sometimes completely invisible. In short, it is desultory, but unique.
