Is a drive to succeed at work motivated purely by financial stability, personal statisfaction, or more by a desire to be recognised by others.

Tracing the life of a large construction site from demolition to the completion of new office space, The Mirroring Cure focuses on people’s relationship with their built environment, highlighting the complexity of personal identities formed through being at work. The film is told from the view point of the company secretary who has decided to interview those employed around her (let’s say: her colleagues). We witness her fascination with one of the architects whom, she discovers, suffers from a loss of balance, which is exacerbated by the large scale of the site. She becomes intrigued by the bizarre cure he develops to cope with his affliction. Appearing initially as a documentary, the gradual introduction of a ‘story line’ leaves the viewer unsure as to what genre of film they are watching.
