In ‘Devenir’ Loredana Bianconi follows a 45-year-old friend on her precarious quest for a job. The story is developed from the individual desperation and courage of Bianconi’s friend towards broader reflections on loneliness, solidarity, age and old age, beauty, autonomy, happiness and the collective dreams of society. In an utterly sober, photographical style of filming fragile, brittle moments become apparent in this essay. Loredana Bianconi asks herself if it’s possible to hold on to your own identity in the competitive world of the jobseeker.
