Working: Clockwork Lemon

With the Australian newspaper industry currently undertaking a major restructure of its workforce and business models, including the closing down of printing presses, this film shows that this is not the first time technology and the influence of computers has raised its digital head. Original synopsis: The printing industry is facing a change almost as big as the introduction of the printing press. Do computers take away the enjoyment of the job? Have skills been lost? Is job security at risk? This film demonstrates the effects of technological change on workers in the printing industry. Produced by Film Australia 1979. Directed by Macek Rubetzki
