opusBOU: El Empleo

Posted by Charlotte Simmonds,

In uncertain economic times, our struggle to find meaningful, full-time work can often make us feel like we’re scrambling over one another for that all-important opportunity. This melancholic Argentine film, directed by Santiago Grasso, takes that idea to the extreme with thought-provoking, witty and beautifully-rendered results. It’s been garlanded with awards (102 and counting) but we came across it via the ever-inspirational Short of the Week site which is a brilliant resource for bite-sized film treats.
