Cast & Crew
A look at the phenomenon known as McDonald's. The film interviews six people - from the USA, China, North Africa, Switzerland, Finland and Brazil. Each of them speaks about him or herself and about the circumstances that led to working for the hamburger chain. The film crew is present at pompous celebrations for the millennium and at Santa Claus's visit to a McDonald's in Finland. A humorous addition to the ongoing debate on globalisation, the film shows how this singularity of American culture is penetrating and influencing every location around the world where one of its restaurants appears.
Shown at Karlovy Vary International Film Festival (Documentary Competition) July 5-14, 2001.
