‘Now something is slowly changing’ is a clear-cut, distinctly visual portrayal of the present-day coaching and training culture. Using only fixed, wide camera angles (without voice-over), the film investigates different forms of self-development and courses for inner growth and performance improvement.
Without protagonists, interviews or voice-overs the film observes, for instance, animal assisted therapy sessions, a class in happiness for primary school children, a training session in dealing with tension and aggression for city law enforcement officers and a vlogger trying to calm her stressed-out followers with gentle, relaxing sounds. It is left up to the spectator to decide whether these mindfulness training programs and coaching courses symbolize something bigger. Where did this search for self-improvement come from? Are we ever good enough?
