New Film: - The Future of Work - in development
Modern Times Productions has currently under development a documentary series about "The New World of Work", that tells the profoundly human story of how modern information and communication technology has given us the choice to organize work in highly
cost-efficient ways that provide simultaneously the human benefits of freedom, creativity, and flexibility.
This is an international production about the "future of work" that is emerging
globally. Embedded in this story are challenges and opportunities for individual workers and citizens, new models of management for leaders, and new roles for institutions, putting human values
at the center of our thinking about business.
