    • Synopsis
    • The theme of the Yugo is based on the new way that makes the harassment, and therefore the violence that lies beneath it, the main axis of the tales.
      Abuse, harassment and humiliation are the methodologies employed by the employer-stalker and are the cause in the employee-dogged trauma, the commitment of the physical and mental health, extending even to death itself. The goal is always the same, discipline, and if it fails it causes the deletion. But here lies the current methodology of this new, now is the same employee-worker is that she committed suicide. This is the new capitalist cunning of reason, which includes labor as a commodity and as Eduardo Grüner says he has found a form of domination "invisible", which appears as a rule it is assumed by the subjects themselves as part of their identity and free will.
      But the documentary does not leave a bitter taste. Quite the contrary. Javier di Pasqua emphasizes that there may be a possible change. It is based on overcoming indifference to stand in solidarity and joint action.
      The selection of sculptural work of Roger Canto Yrurtia is not free: the union is strength.
