Men at Work

The film depicts the daily routine of 35 men working for one of the last remaining governmental institutions in Austria that only employ men. Their responsibility is to look after a 40km stretch of one of Europe’s biggest transit routes, the A1. Inspired by the poem of one of the road workers, the film is a sensitive journey to the world of pure masculinity, camaraderie and team spirit.
