Synopsis
Seda (20) sorts car components all night long at Audi as a temp worker. She dreams about a permanent contract. Then she could emancipate herself from her conservative parents and buy her own Mercedes-Benz.
Headhunter Eva (33) is a specialist for recruiting experts in logistics automation which will eventually make Seda's job obsolete. A minimum of 10% of all jobs at Audi in Ingolstadt will be substituted through digitalization and automation in the next years. Currently these sought-after professionals are paid top Euros. In a few years Eva wants to stop working and move to the Caribbean with her girlfriend
AUTOMOTIVE tells a story of a generation for which work as a basis of existence is neither safe nor identity shaping. Seda and Eva might seem very different at first, but they share the same goal: personal independence and dignity through their work in the digital age.
