Ruthless Times - Songs for Care (Susanna Helke)

This darkly humorous film explores the state of the Finnish public care system, with employees trying to survive in conditions where efficiency and profits have become the most important values. Robots roam the halls of care homes and nurses are relegated to remote-care call centres. The care workers’ anonymous testimonies are composed into choral songs, depicting the everyday experiences of those working in the field. Through songs, the film gives a voice to those who don’t dare to talk for fear of losing their jobs. What cannot be talked about, must be sung! (Raina Films)
