The Burden (Min Börda)

Niki Lindroth von Bahr -Sweden
2017 — Animation — English subtitles — omer.bulduk@sfi.se

An animated musical with apocalyptic undertones. Four episodes take place in a supermarket, a long term hotel, a call center, and a hamburger restaurant. Each place is part of a modern, generic market place next to a large freeway. Perhaps the last places you would expect to see musical numbers performed by the inhabitants and workers; but here they are, singing joyfully; joylessly; hilariously; nightmarishly.
