‘Now something is slowly changing’
Massage therapy with pigs, videos of women whispering and stroking the microphone with a comb, happiness classes for elementary school kids, and leadership taught through horse-training—these are just a few of the personal growth coaching methods shown in this film. In each of these workshops, participants try to pinpoint what exactly is wrong with them, promptly fix it, and of course, find meaning. The camera does not judge them; quite the contrary—it observes from a safe distance, letting them question, wonder, experience frustration or catharsis, and for the most part, show us their attempts to cope with distresses that we are all familiar with. The result is a surprising anthropological compilation.
