Synopsis

Supposed to examines how the capitalist system relies on alienation and exhaustion to separate people from their own humanity. By reediting and sampling “footage and dialogue from science fiction films, psychological thrillers and corporate training videos, Supposed to builds a hybrid narrative of characters exhausted by work, acting out, escaping conflict and misdirected blame, and ultimately returning to an inevitable deep wordless knowledge that shapes our shared reality.”(1)
