Synopsis

New shopping mall is being created. Everyone is familiar with this experience and knows what a mall looks like. This self-evident phenomenon is, however, the result of a highly complex process. What have mall owners, investors, architects, managers, surveillance technicians, and supermarket workers done to turn human subjects into pure streams of consumers, into the perfect inhabitants of shopping mall paradise? Which part of the plan worked that a customer made a “spontaneous” purchase?

Screening is combined with the films “The Creators of Shopping Worlds”, “An Image”.
